March for our homes!

Cindy speech 2

On what turned out to be a glorious sunny day in Leeds city centre yesterday, residents from Sugar Hill Close and Wordsworth Drive joined Leeds Trade Union on a march through the city. We had placards, banners and even four-legged supporters – and it was really great to see so much interest and support for our campaign to prevent Pemberstone from demolishing these historic, affordable family homes.

Chair of the Resident Action Group gave a fantastic speech which got much applause, and our leaflets were snapped up. We are so happy to be a part of such a vibrant Leeds community focused on issues of social justice – long may it continue!

Thanks to all of those who turned out in solidarity for our campaign, and who listened to our concerns. And a huge thank you to Leeds Trade Union, who invited us on this demo. The fight continues!
