Lewisham: binning the rates rise
Lewisham and Southwark Socialist Party members called a protest on 15 September alongside Catford Against Social Cleansing.
We were protesting against Lewisham council raising business rates in the area by £6,000. It is clear they are trying to drive local businesses out, and are preparing to bring in big corporates, as has happened with so many other gentrification schemes in London.
