INSPIRE 2 RESIST campaign

 

 

“Vision without action is only dreaming,

action without vision is only passing time,

vision with action can change the world”

 

Nelson Mandela

 

 

 

 

The PLAN

 

We contact tenants' organisations and community halls across the Uk. Then we arm ourselves with a projector, a screen and some speakers. We are now a mobile walking cinema! That’s it. We go out into the community, screen 'Concrete Soldiers UK' and share what we have and what we know, whilst recording people's experiences and successes.

 

 

The PRODUCT

 

On our return we then put together a handbook - a collage of KNOWLEDGE. All about regeneration and about fighting the social cleansing of our cities.

 

The handbook will have notes about the best lessons learned in dealing with estate regeneration, and the councils and developers driving the planned destruction of estates, as well as the potential pitfalls to watch out for.

 

The 'Concrete Soldiers UK' handbook, called INSPIRE 2 RESIST, will be available free online or given out in booklet form (if we get enough funding) .

Creating links and learning from the Q&A's...

 

 

Some of the local issues that people are finding are:

 

Lack of accountability of RSLs locally.

No allocated housing officer.

Maintaining and managing service contracts effectively.

Aggressive risk adverse policies in the stock. Removal of plants, door mats, washing lines.

Poor standard of repair.

Generally our RSLs have merged and become part of huge national/regional corporate organisations who are harder to reason with or defeat.

 

- As we do more panel discussions around London and the wider country we will be updating this section..
