“The Nine Elms development is huge – over 230 hectares and brings together on one site, a myriad of super rich projects. The poor are supposed to cheer on the rich, swimming in the Skypool ten stories out of their reach – the ‘trickle down’ effect is nowhere more bonkers than here.
So I suggest we – and all others we can work with – target this rich fiefdom when the battle against Covid is over.
In the past we have fought against many local developments from Cressingham Gardens to Central Hill, but this gives us a target which can unite many people including the locals.
So don’t wait till then but get on your web pages and smart phones and spread the word – lets hit the ground running.”
During the South London march in support of The Aylesbury occupation and against the Southwark Labour Council’s plans for demolition, direct-action protesters pull down the fences around the besieged Estate.
No one gave a fuck about the working class Londoners who have been forced out by the rich, by tourism, by Air BnB, by social cleansing, by corrupt Labour local authorities, by a completely deregulated property market, by the moneyed middle-classes, by the deliberate managed decline of our spaces and by the overcrowding of once accessible cheap accommodation.
It became a city for bosses, landlords, mafia-gangs and smug cunts, where everyone was dragged into the alienating competition – like it or not. Families, support networks, intergenerational wisdom and rich cultural seams have been destroyed and many Londoners have ended up on the streets, literally driven insane. The cunts in suits have done what Hitler couldn’t do – post Covid, we have to take it all back.
