Just another quick plug for a few upcoming events:
The most urgent news is that Annington Homes have served High Court bailiff notices to all the families still living on the Sweets Way estate, so they’re asking anyone who can make it to Barnet to come out and help fight this dirty piece of social cleansing.
There’s also a march for the homeless coming up in London on Wednesday 15th, and a day of action against the gentrification of Brixton planned for the 25th. Housing Action Southwark and Lambeth also have a few events coming up including a training session on the 18th and a birthday party on Sunday 26th, and a few of them are hoping to make the trip over to Oxford for the re-launch of Oxford Tenants’ Union on the 22nd.

Another quick round-up:
The warehouse workers who’ve been organising in West London want to hit the road and talk to other workers in big warehouse hubs across the country, as well as organising film screenings of a new documentary about struggles by warehouse workers in Italy. If you’d like to get in touch about an event in your town, you can contact them at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Freedom Riders, the group of pensioners and disabled people who’ve been taking direct action against transport cuts in South Yorkshire with mass fare-dodging actions, have been going strong for a year now, and celebrated their first anniversary with a demonstration in Barnsley on Tuesday 31st. They’ve produced a two-sided leaflet to explain the story so far in their fight for free travel on both trains and buses.
