organised by Focus E15 Mothers
To mark the second anniversary of Focus E15 campaign we are organising a march in Newham against evictions and for decent housing for all.
Please contact us if your group is coming to the march and can help spread the word across your networks and if you want to see your campaign or group added to the active supporters list which is at the bottom of this page.
Get Angry! Get Active! Get Involved!
Across the country, the eviction rate has never been so high with 126 families being evicted every day. The housing crisis is escalating and none of the major political parties are offering convincing solutions.
Newham Council is led by Labour Mayor Robin Wales, an unashamed advocate of gentrification, supporter of sanctioning and kicking out the poor and most vulnerable.
Under his rule, 400 homes on the Carpenters Estate remain empty while homeless people, whom the council has a statutory duty to house, are forced to move out of London.
On the second anniversary of the Focus E15 Campaign, we will be marching for these issues.
All welcome. Bring friends, colleagues and family – let’s make our voices heard! Homes for people not investors! Repopulate the Carpenters Estate!
Nearest tube: Stratford Stn/Stratford Int.
Buses: 25, 86, 69, 104, 262, 238
