It’s Our Tottenham, not Their Tottenham

Protest outside the £300-a-head ‘regeneration and redevelopment’ event at our Town Hall

Thursday 26th March, 1pm – 2pm

Tottenham Town Hall, Town Hall Approach Rd, London N15 4RY
Protest called by the Our Tottenham Coordination Group, Haringey Housing Action Group, Taxpayers Against Poverty, and Haringey Solidarity Group. All supporters are welcome to bring relevant placards and banners…

We believe that those who live and work in Tottenham should be driving forward the decisions about the future of our communities. Instead we have unaccountable property developers, Councillors and private companies trying to impose their top-down, profit-led mass ‘regeneration and redevelopment’ schemes all over our neighbourhoods.

As the Tottenham public are excluded from this elitist event for so-called ‘key stakeholders’ [see below], we call on local people to attend the protest/rally outside to make our voices known…We invite all the real key stakeholders to join in.

At 6pm local people are invited to come and share ‘protest nibbles’ outside the N17 Design Studio, 451-453 High Road, London, N17 6QH, where event participants will be eating their own luxury ‘nibbles’ to round off their event.
