6.30pm from The Anchor, Deptford High Street, to Lewisham Town Hall 10 August 2011

Tonight (Wednesday), 6.30pm
Emergency demonstration against the cuts which caused the riots
6.30pm from The Anchor, Deptford High Street, to Lewisham Town Hall,
Called by a peoples’ assembly on the streets of Deptford last night.

Saturday, 1pm
Give Our Kids a Future! A North London Unity Demonstration
1pm from Gillett Square, Dalston to Tottenham Green

This march is called by The North London Assembly, a temporary
Assembly which saw 70 local community activists meet at the North
London Community House on Tuesday 9th August to discuss our reaction
to the riots of early August in Tottenham and Hackney. It includes
people from many Turkish and Kurdish community groups, like Day Mer
and Gik Der, and also the Haringay and Hackney Alliances for Public
Services who are all supporting this march. We state that this is not
us seeking to represent the community but it is our attempt to try to
bring unity to the community in which we live. It is neither
supporting nor condeming the events but seeking the most positive
outcome from them. This will be a positive and peaceful march with an
Assembly at the end for people to express what they are thinking about
recent events.

    This is deeply unwise. No matter how well intentioned and peaceful any march is – it can be used by other organisations (EDL/NF) to start what they desperately want – a fight. If you really care about Lewisham you should re-schedule immediately.

      The organizers I know are about as non EDL as you can get, and I for one ctainly support commune organizing (against EDL included) – and many lefts coming. Nutjobs not welcome, i’m sure. That said, i’m just posting the info, so could not ‘reschedule’ even if I wanted. Aplanning to attend. Are you?

      *community organizing, not commune, though commune would have been ok, and communist better. Preedictive text errors of joy. Sorry Harry.
