Save Brixton Arches: 3rd Anniversary Action

Brixton, London. Sun 4 Feb 2018

 


 Potent Whisper is interviewed for TV

 

 Andrew Coopers banner for the event and his sculpture of the 4-headed monster that is Lambeth Labour Council

 Sue Foster, Matthew Bennett, Council Leader Lib Peck and Jack Hopkins

 

 

 

 They made some posters at a workshop before the event

 and these were handed out

 

 

 

 

 Posters list the dangers of the work on the arches - Fire risk and particulates for businesses and people in the area

 'Network Jail' - and the working is being carried out in breach of the planning conditions laid down by Lambeth Council

 

 which the protesters are demanding they should enforce. Potent Whispher introduces the protest

 and lays down why they are protesting - the fire risk,

 

 problems with severely restricted emergency access

 the general danger from dust and air pollution - which will make much trading impossible, particularly in food

 

 and the particular hazard from asbestos removal - there are no safety measures to protect the local population

 'Property Developers Parasites!'

 We get more detail on the problems from another of the campaigners

 'Make it Safe - Shut This Down'
