Nov 9, 2014 — Dear all
After yesterday's rousing demo against the turfing out, by the stealth tactics of outrageous rent hikes, of the New Era Estate families, we have 74,000 signatures to our petition, the backing of Russell Brand, media coverage and both national and international support. Our voice is being heard loud and clear: we are here to stay. We shall not be moved!
If we can achieve this much support in one week, think what we can do over the coming weeks and months?
Thank you to all those friends who have been sharing our cause and spreading the word. You are the people who are making this possible. But in order for us to succeed we need you to continue to help us by getting our message out there.
Over the coming weeks we will be planning further action, so watch this space.
Keep fighting for people power!
Politicians and rich CEOs shouldn't make all the decisions. Today we ask you to help keep Change.org free and independent. Our job as a public benefit company is to help petitions like this one fight back and get heard. If everyone who saw this chipped in monthly we'd secure Change.org's future today. Help us hold the powerful to account. Can you spare a minute to become a member today?I'll power Change with $5 monthly
