This week-end will see a major anti-gentrification event in Tower Hamlets. A number of campaigns have joined together to highlight the devastation caused by redevelopment and the demolition and sell-offs of council and social housing. The event begins at Whitechapel Tube at 11 am on Saturday August 8th. We will go on a walking tour of a number of the sites that are being targeted for redevelopment. We finish at Holland Estate whose residents are currently fighting plans of their housing association to demolish their homes and build instead luxury apartments and homes for ‘affordable’ not social rents.
On Sunday, the 9th, there will be an assembly of a number of the campaigning groups in Victoria Park. Meet at 1 pm at the Pagoda.
For more information about the day see: http://www.th-federation.org.uk/events/stop-the-blocks/
So please join us in Action East End and other groups in supporting this event.
