Dissident Island Radio – 15 July 2011 – episode 86:
The show will feature discussions around housing and the latest on the ongoing saga on the proposed squatting ban and neo-liberal agendas to decimate public housing and gentrify inner city areas – with reflections on “regeneration” schemes in the south London boroughs of Lambeth and Southwark and beyond. Some of the folks we’ll be hearing from include:
* Georgina, a former Clifton Mansions resident – on the recent
eviction of the 22 flats in the oldest squat in Brixton
* Jody Boeh, from the SQUASH campaign, on the parliamentary consultation addressing the proposed squatting ban
* Adrien, one of the last six remaining residents of the Heygate Estate, on the fight to save the trees and the space for urban garden and community projects
* Fil on Dale Farm in Essex, the largest travelers’ site in Europe, which got its eviction notice…
…as well as the usual banter, bollocks, fuck-ups, and some vinyl audio goodies thanks to DJ Buster of badmood.net and wireless.fm fame.
So check it! And let’s stop the rot and squat the lot!
