Embrace the Base 2008

As part of the campaign to prevent Haringey Council from approving the absurd Grainger development, we showed our strength in numbers by forming a human chain around most of the Ward’s Corner site on Saturday.

We set out our stall:

and sold t-shirts

and let passing traffic know about us

Wards Corner shout out

Wards Corner shout out

and  sang songs.

We shall not be moved

We shall not be moved

The BBC filmed us for the evening news

Then the human chain got going

Supporters from other markets joined us

We estimate that 500 people were there.

It was so powerful that all that TLC reached the Planning Committee. See next post but one.
