This exhibition focuses of the children of the displaced who make up well over half of the people living in these conditions. (more…)

Why you should support the #DeliverooStrike?
Freedom and flexibility: the new On-Demand platform economy. Drivers, couriers, cleaners and handymen are now at your beck and call thanks to a host of apps. But what’s it like to work for an On-Demand service? For scooter drivers and cyclists at Deliveroo “freedom and flexibility” means exploitation and exhaustion. And they’ve had enough of it… Find out more and donate here: https://t.co/07gb49Bmi4

UPDATED 11 AUGUST 2016:
Three estate agents sacked for taking on anarchists in mass brawl outside Boris Johnson’s home

UPDATED 13 JULY 2016: Boris Johnson accepts the role of Foreign Secretary under the new Theresa May government. Boris, our senior diplomat, the man whole stole our future. Now we really are all fucked. Do we just grin and bear it, or do we grin and fight back?

I’d be gutted!’ (more…)

Class War Against London’s Housing Elite
