Property Developer's Awards

Grosvenor House Hotel, Mayfair, London. Tue 4 April 2017

 

 Protesters arrive at the Grosvenor House Hotel on Park Lane with posters 'Give Us Back Our Social Housing'

 and 'Property is Theft' as well as 'Social Housing NOT Social Cleansing'

 And anti-poverty campaigner Rev Paul Nicolson rings his warning bell

 'LGBTQ* Housing Benefit Withdrawn 18-25yo'

 'Hands Off Our Cities'

 Rev Paul Nicolson of Taxpayers Against Poverty speaks

 

 'Landlord - Parasite!' poster from Private Renters Unite - many rented properties have cockroaches etc

 Aysen from the Aylesbury Estate 'We can't Afford the Rich Anymore!'

 and 'Heygate, Aylesbury Old Kent Rd - Southwark We See You!'

 'Evict the Rich' and 'Give Back Affordable Housing' Affordable housing is used by governments to mean 80% of market

 prices - something totally unaffordable for most people - the term true Orwellian doublespeak

 

 'Evict the Rich'

 

 Activists rush up with a sack of horse manure

 and tip it on the hotel entrance

 with the message 'Social Housing NOT Social Cleansing'

 

 

 

 Class War hold their banner with the Lucy Parsons quote 'We must devastate the avenues where the wealthy live'

 Ian bone holds up a megaphone making a siren noise

 as he stands with Jane Nicholl

 and others from Class War

 Cockroaches crawl around a poster next to the manure

 which hotel employes try to sweep up

 Jane Nicholl is assaulted by a hotel employee as she goes to try and reclaim a poster from the hotel's waste bin

 Ian Bone speaks
