Occupation over but campaign continues!

A huge thank you to all who came out this morning in the cold to protest against the shameful treatment of the shorthold tenants by Guinness.

Having stopped the eviction that was due to take place this morning and won the right of the AST tenants to apply for homes in London, we took the decision to end the occupation.

But the campaign to make sure these 44 familes are not evicted will continue – we can’t allow this social cleansing.

If Guinness get any further court orders to send bailiffs to evict anyone off the estate we will organise again to resist it.

Well done to all involved in the success of the campaign so far.

Next steps:

  • Saturday: Stall at Brixton tube 11am-1pm to collect signatures on the petition and raise the profile of the campaign
  • Monday: meet 8am at Guinness estate SW9 8NN  to travel together to #blockthebudget at City Hall and demand Boris stumps up the cash needed to ensure that every home on the Guinness estate is social housing. Then there would be more than enough accommodation for all the AST tenants to be rehoused locally. More details at https://www.facebook.com/events/828141947231932/
