This month: not just a chance to hear reportbacks from the huge coordinated strike action on the day (as well as trade unionists being present from the various disputes, Reel News will be filming in London and Birmingham), but a chance to have a practical discussion about what we do in North London about the growing threat of gentrification.

In Hackney, the latest gentrification attack is the buying up of a council estate by a multi-millionaire, where huge rent rises will mean mass evictions. (Read more here: http://hackneyrenters.org/2014/07/03/a-new-era-for-social-cleansing-richard-benyon-must-be-stopped/)

We’re coming across a wholesale jerseys lot of people locally who feel that there’s nothing that you can do about cheap jerseys gentrification, so we thought the best thing we could do would be to show campaigns from around the world where people are doing something about it – and winning.

Come to the screening and see what they’ve been doing in the USA (including the defeat of property developers in East Harlem), Vancouver in Canada, how they’ve fought evictions Cheap Oakleys in Madrid and Barcelona – and what happened in the astonishing uprising in Burgos in Spain this year, where the building of a new luxury shopping mall was stopped completely.

We will also have activists from Hackney and Haringey talking about how they are organising – including the launching of the campaign against Benyon Estates’ rent rises.

Speakers und confirmed so far: DAVE MORRIS from Our Tottenham and activists from DIGS private renter information, support and визам campaign group.

And Fake Ray Bans then we’ll have music and drinks until midnight…as always, FREE!
