Protest – No To Clapham Park Evictions
Monday 31st March, 11.30 am
Clapham Park Offices, 91 New Park Road, SW2 4AX

Organised by Lambeth Housing Activists

What would you do if suddenly you and your family were forced out of your home after three years? Would you allow landlords to kick you down and let the council leave you to rot in temporary accommodation miles from your community? Would you stand up? Then stand up with us too!

Join us and Lambeth Housing Activists to support a recently evicted tenant to make a public complaint to Metropolitan Homes and Lambeth Council – we ask, why should a family be evicted from their home and yet the flat remains empty? Why is there a shortage of quality, secure, and truly affordable housing in Lambeth?

What are the priorities of this council and these landlords? Housing for homes, not as assets! Stop the gentrification of Brixton!

[UPDATE: Metropolitan backed down on 4th April and agreed to rehouse Ester in Clapham Park. More details here. Thanks to everyone who supported the campaign]
