Housing Emergency Coalition: A call to action 15th December

November 30, 2010

WEDNESDAY DECEMBER 15th
The new Housing Emergency Coalition has called a protest outside Downing St on Wednesday December 15th – they want people to take cardboard boxes and sleeping bags and after the Downing St protest disabled people will move to Trafalgar Square

The Housing Emergency Coalition against the Housing Benefit cap and social cleansing start to demonstrate outside Downing Street at about 12.30. They want people to take sleeping bags and cardboard boxes emblazoned with Housing Emergency on them as props to show the consequences of the coalition’s plans.

After this disabled people will move on to the Trafalgar Square xmas tree, at about 3, for some nativity themed photo ops. We will be visited by Joseph and Mary and their lovely donkey. We will meet them with placards carrying our borough names and turn them away.

Other ideas greatly appreciated. Offers of help greatly appreciated. Activists coming to the action loved and greatly adored. (especially in this weather).
