We voted to support this protest and join environmental and housing campaigners to demand refurbishment not demolition on 14 March.
EXPOSED: Profiteering Developers (Home & Planet Wreckers)
12pm – 2pm Tuesday 14 March
Waterloo Millennium Green Baylis Road London SE1 7AA
The event is part of the build-up to the Extinction Rebellion ‘Big One’ a four day rolling protest in central London in April.
Campaigners in the group Housing Rebellion hope to make a few unannounced ‘site visits’ to some of the worst climate culprits in the property industry to say ‘Refurbish Don’t Demolish’; ‘Create low-energy, low-cost, warm, dry homes for all’; ‘Provide housing for people and planet not profit’.
This is a welcome unification of demands to stop the climate emergency and demands to ensure homes for people not profit. This is something Homes for All and our supporting organisations have paid more attention to in recent years including our involvement with Yes to Fair Redevelopment, the Campaign Against Empty Homes and other local campaigns against demolition and gentrification. It points to the need for a system-wide challenge to the way society is organised, depriving people of decent homes and a livable planet.
