New Era Campaign

On Monday 1 December more than 500 people took to the streets to show their support for the 93 families from Hoxton’s New Era estate whose homes have been bought up by American firm Westbrook Partners.

Single mum and resident Lindsey Garrett, a Unite member, led the march to Downing Street where a petition with more than 300,000 signatures was handed in to David Cameron.

The New Era campaign is part of a wider campaign calling for more social housing and no social cleansing.
