16-12-2005 10:38Solidarity Cafe Night in support of the occupation of Tony's Cafe in Hackney.
Grassroots tenants groups have celebrated today the "no" vote against transfering Council Houses in Edinburgh to a newly founded Housing Association.
The City of Edinburgh Council publicised the outcome of the ballot.
53% of eligable tenants voted "No" in the ballot which had a turnout of about 60%.
The grassroot groups took on a battle against an estimated £21 million PR campaign funded by the Scottish executive - and won!
The ballot was brought forward from Spring 2006 to November 2005 to avoid unpleasant findings by Audit Scotland, which researches the effects of council housing stock transfer at the moment, and then furthermore brought the vote forward another six days to make a possible legal challenge by the Scottish Tenants Organisation impossible.

Ownership has now reverted to the County Council. The County Council have stated firm intentions to sign a 125 year lease to Citylife on 23rd of December. Citylife want to knock down the building and build a social enterprise incubator.
