Cressingham Gardens Residents Demand a Ballot

Residents of the Cressingham Gardens estate in Lambeth, South London have fought an inspiring battle for five years now, delaying attempts by the right-wing Labour council to demolish and renovate their estate against the wishes of 86% of the residents. Now that official Labour party policy is to ballot residents on any demolition plans, the residents are demanding that their ferociously anti-Corbyn councillors follow their own party policy and give the residents a binding ballot. In this demonstration in Brixton they are joined by housing campaigners from Southwark and Haringey facing similar social cleansing projects.
