Child Fire Station demo
Congratulations to everyone who came to the demonstration and consultation meeting on Thursday. We got over 100 people on a really lively and colourful demonstration with more people joining us at the meeting. At the meeting I think we made our points well and made the commissioner and the chair of the London Fire Authority feel very uncomfortable.

Particular congratulations to Bridget for organising a vote at the meeting, in the teeth of the chair’s opposition, that showed nobody in the meeting supported the fire station closures. You can see a video of below

The event was reported by the SW Londoner and the Wandsworth Guardian. We also saw journalists from the Brixton Blog and the South London Press at the demo so we should get coverage there too.

We now need to decide the next steps for the campaign. We’re having a campaign meeting this Tuesday
