The residents are a loosely affiliated collection of crews and individuals, with differing political stances (or lack-thereof) and ideas about how an eviction attempt should be handled. Some wish to walk out and not make a fuss, some are actively against any resistance, and some would like to keep and defend their home. Many residents are vulnerable: children, older people, cats, dogs and plenty of people with nowhere else to go and at risk of having to sleep rough.
What do we have to gain from walking out quietly and giving the scumbag developers and duplicitous Lambeth Council an easy time? Fuck all.
Those who want to help us stay are welcome.
Come along tonight or at the crack of dawn tomorrow if you can help out. Bring what you would expect to find and anything that might be useful. Please spread the word among your friends and networks, and feel free to reproduce this text.
We're 5min walk from Oval tube station or Vassall Road bus stops.
