HOUSING ACTIVISTS DISRUPT PROPERTY AWARDS

Less mainstream media attention for this action but well worth a look in our judgement – some very nice pictures and, of course, more evidence of the direct action movement on social housing which is spreading like wildfire across London.

Lancaster West residents would do well to sit up and take notice because we are on the list. We’ve known this for several years already. Now is the time for action before it becomes too late to make a difference.
