so dancing in the street is what happens.
The second Salsa Shutdown for Seven Sisters happened on Sunday 25th June. It was a fundraiser towards the legal costs of objecting to the Compulsory Purchase Order for Wards Corner. The inquiry will run from 11th to 28th July, Tuesdays to Fridays, at Wood Green Civic Centre.
The developer Grainger has assets of £2.8 billion. There is no legal aid for CPO’s. The campaign to defend Wards Corner and the Latin Market can only pay for the barristers it needs by fundraising, and they are still short by about £10,000 of the cost of having a barrister throughout the hearing. The council and Grainger each have a QC (the council’s paid for from Council Tax) and their job will be to cross-examine the witnesses. Not something most of campaigners look forward to, so the more they can have their barrister to support them, the more fair it will be. Please help if you can via this crowdfunder site.
The serious hard work of all this dancing raised about £250, plus more (still counting) from the sale of food, many thanks to all contributors.
and here’s a fabulous video seen on the Gal-Dem site.
