What does "conveniently packaged and parked with few protections" mean? Does it refer to "(all their belongings are) conveniently packaged and (their cars) parked with few protections"?

---------------------
The terrorist attacks in Britain,
together with the inferno at Grenfell, are linked through
the collapse of microcivilisations. Communities from
which terrorists emerge are prey to incitement because
of a collapse of hope regarding schools, jobs, homes,
safety, welfare, and health. Those living in Grenfell Tower
were a diverse mix of Moroccans, Eritreans, and more,
conveniently packaged and parked with few protections
by a council that revelled in its exclusive status. Hate,
racism, xenophobia, and terror will be hard to defeat. But
medicine and public health can play a part. First, they must
find their voice and join the public discussion. Second,
they must put at the centre of their concern those who
are most vulnerable in our societies, and use a political as
well as a biomedical lens to interpret and understand their
predicaments. Third, they must examine the accumulating
body of evidence about community-specific, multisector,
equity-oriented interventions that can make inroads into
racism. Inequality does not hurt us equally. There can be
neither health nor health equity while racism is tolerated
and, in today’s aggressive anti-immigration culture, even
encouraged.

@oristarA,
It has nothing to do with automobiles.

In this matter, the people who dwelt in Grenfell Towers who were 'conveniently packaged and parked', means precisely that. The residents, who were mainly immigrants were moved into Grenfell Towers. Therefore, packaged. They were living there. Therefore, they were physically parked. Moving people into housing, is packaging and parking them.

@Sturgis,
Does "park" here mean "settle"?

Park: to put, leave, or settle:
Park your coat on the chair. Park yourself over there for a moment.

@oristarA,
Yes. In this case, people were settled into Grenfell Towers. Settled in, meaning they moved there for the purpose of living.

@Sturgis,
A more accutrate word than parked in this case might be dumped.

@chai2,
True. Since that is essentially what the Council did with these people.
