London Housing Crisis

Join us for a talk on the HOUSING CRISIS with 3 great guest speakers: Emile Burgoyne, Alex Rankin and Tyrone Scott.

 

"More than a quarter of a million people in England woke up homeless this morning. Some will have slept rough, some are in grim B&Bs, and others are in old office buildings that have been converted into human warehouses. This is an emergency" - The Observer - 16-FEB-2020. ‘Housing should be seen as a human right. Not a commodity’ - The Guardian - 27-FEB-2017.

We have three great speakers: documentary maker, Emile Burgoyne, Director of Services at Aspire, Alex Rankin and Community Organiser for a national housing charity and Green Party activist, Tyrone Scott. Each will give a talk followed by a Q&A session.

Please watch the following three YouTube videos BEFORE the event:

The Hammersmith Bridge: where are we now, and the potential future

Hammersmith Bridge will have been closed to vehicles for a year on April 10th. While TFL and Hammersmith and Fulham Council are keen to reopen the bridge to vehicles after repairs, many residents are asking that the bridge should remain car-free permanently. At the moment, only cyclists and pedestrians have access and local Greens are broadly supportive of keeping it that way.

Invited speakers:
Siân Berry, Mayoral Candidate for the Green Party
Hamish Steward, Car Free London
Charles Critchell, Fare City
Barnes Community Association
Mums for Lungs, East Sheen

TFL have a consultation - details on this email forwarded by one of our members
