Class War protest Labour Housing record
City Hall, London. Sat 3 Nov 2018
Class War have taken part in many campaigns to save council housing
across London and to point out that
the great majority of the estate demolition and social cleansing is
being done by Labour councils.
'Labour, Labour, Home Snatchers! Even Worse than Maggie Thatcher'
The picture shows Jeremy Corbyn being
shown a list of around 160 London council estates that Labour councils
are destroying with the aid of developers
forcing many on low incomes to the outskirts of London or far beyond
in what amounts to a huge programme of social cleansing
Leigh Miller, recently illegally evicted from Gallions Point Marina
and Lisa McKenzie hold the banner high
Martin Smith of Class War shouts loudly at Labour Party supporters
who are telling him to shut up
and holds up the poster 'Labour Leaders in the Social Cleansing of
Council Estates in London'
Class War's claims are backed up by the extensive research of ASH,
Architects for Social Hosing, whose
alternative schemes for development without social cleansing have
been given no real consideration by Labour councils
Ian Bone and Sid Skill (right) argue with a Labour supporter
After speaking over the shouting from Class War, Ted Knight came to
confront Martin Smith
they shouted at each other. Though Ted Knight's Lambeth council built
many of the estates now under threat
and he opposes the demolitions, Smith accuses Labour under him of
'Whatever You Steal From Our Communities We WIll Take It All Back!
'Justice 4 Gallions Point Marina'
Class War's protest agains the empty £50m flats in the Shard
received wide favourable coverage even in the right-wing press
Leigh Miller speaks about the illegal use of force to evict her from
Gallions Point Marina
