Poor people are being priced out of London. Council housing is dying out and being replaced by “affordable housing”. “Urban Development” projects are destroying cheaper properties and pushing up land value. Unused plots are being held as cash cows by rich individuals and groups to make more money. Gentrification is ruining our city. British people clearly oppose the situation. The scale of resistance to “The Depford Project” and the support that has been shown for Russell Brand and the New Era Estate campaign make it clear. London is not being improved it is being erased. “Urban renewal” is the biggest threat facing poor Londoners. Please support all anti-development campaigns in your area, or if you are not in London please show your support online. If you want to know more about The Depford Project please read our follow up article coming soon. Thanks from the Essy staff.
