Tomorrow (July 3rd), there is going to be both a protest and a benefit aimed at fighting plans by Haringey Council to forcefully evict many council tenants through their controversial HDV development programme (dubbed by critics at the £2Billion Pound Gamble).
The demonstration will assemble at Ducketts Common (Turnpike Lane Tube end) at around 5.30pm. There will be a March from the Common which will end at Haringey Civic Centre in the High Road.
Afterwards, there will be a benefit evening to raise funds for the legal fight against the council’s plans. It will take place at Wood Green Social Club, 3 Stuart Crescent, Wood Green, N22 5NJ (Not far from the Civic Centre) at 8PM. More info here.
Several estates and key public buildings based in Tottenham and across the borough are affected by the council’s HDV. Wherever you are affected or if you’re concerned about the way the council is forcing this through without fighting for more funds from the government or looking for alternatives, we still need to fight these damaging plans which could seriously affect the way public services are delivered in the borough in the future.
