March against closing community centres

Stockwell, London. Sat 21 Mar 2017


 The protest is backed by various local groups including Unite community

 

 
    
 As well as families and children who use the community centres at Stockwell and Kennington Park

 

 

 

 The Portuguese Community who live in Stockwell support the centre

 Some banners say that Hyde is a Housing Association not a building company, but surely

 the real question is why Lambeth Council are not supporting the community centres in Lambeth

 and why are they closing libraries, demolishing social housing and more. That this protest was

 called by the Labour Party seems ridiculous hypocrisy. Labour should be supporting community centres

 supporting libraries and other facilities for local people - not closing them down, and certainly not

 supporting useless vanity projects such as the Garden Bridge.

 The £20m they are giving to the Garden Bridge could fund community centres that are under threat

 So groups like 'Save our Stockwell Centre' should be sticking it to Lambeth Labour, not

 marching with them. Telling their councillors to do the job they are elected to do

for the local population.
