Stand Up to Lambeth Council

Windrush Square, Brixton, London. Sat 8 Oct 2016

 

 The Hemans Estate in Vauxhall is under threat from Lambeth Council

 Ten libraries are being 'stolen' byt Lambeth and some given to a private gym company to run
    
 People were asked to wear pink for the protest

 

 Andrew Coopers poster shows some of the reasons people are fighting Lambeth

 and he holds his 4-headed sculpture of the villians of Lambeth Council: Lambeth Labour leader Lib Peck, Cabinet Member for Housing Cllr Matthew Bennett, Cabinet Member for Regeneration, Business and Culture Jack Hopkins and Sue Foster, Strategic Director, Neighbourhoods and Growth.

Despite it being a protest against the Labour Council, the Labour party came with a stall 

 people argued with them and asked them to leave

 but they refused

 and police came to protect them

 Savills are a leading agency in social cleansing and Lambeth works with them

 Andrew points out Liz Peck

 #Save414 - the legendary Club 414 on Coldharbour Lane in Brixton
    
 Cressingham Gardens estate under threat from Lambeth - as well as the libraries

 

 'Council of Idiots' by Liz Peck

 and 'A Library: The Gift the keeps on Giving' by 'Defend the 10'
