The March for Homes
Demand better housing for London
All over London vast new residential developments are rising from holes in the ground. You only have to walk around Elephant and Castle to see this happening. Yet London is in the middle of a housing crisis. There are simply not enough new homes being built to cater for the number of people moving to the city each year. London needs homes to cater for all groups of people and not just the wealthy. Property prices have grown as crazy rates over the past few years and average wages have not kept up with inflation.
The average worker will find it impossible to afford a home in the capital. On Saturday 31st January there will be a March on City Hall London to put pressure on the Mayor Boris Johnson to address this problem.
The March will assemble at 2 places at 12 midday Assemble St Maryʼs Churchyard, Elephant & Castle SE1 6SQ (tube/rail Elephant & Castle)
Assemble Shoreditch Church, Shoreditch High Street E1 6JN (tube/rail Shoreditch High Street)
The organisers of the march are demanding that things change.
