On Tuesday 29th September at 8.00am, the forces of darkness descended on a property in Ilford to evict a family of three. To their surprise, they were met by a group of Waltam residents standing peacefully but assertivately in front of the house. On realising what they were up against, threats were made and the police called. Yet, the Waltham community stood firm in their solidarity and prevented the eviction from taking place, keeping the family housed.
Communities coming together to support and defend eachother against the cruelty and injustice of the London housing market. Is this the beginning of the end of the housing crisis?
Here’s some inspiring video footage of the resistance, please share widely.
