|Screening of Trashed on 8th March|
|Protest at Development Committee meeting on 13th March|
It's been a productive five days. After watching Trashed at the Houses of Parliament around a month ago, colleagues and I in the Stop The Incinerator campaign hosted a screening at Fairfield Halls in Croydon. That was an achievement in itself because this prestigious venue didn't initially seem enthusiastic! After the film, there was a spontaneous round of applause from the 80+ people that attended the screening. Privately, I knew there would be! In the Q & A after the film, I harnessed the emotion in the Maple Room and urged everyone to join in a protest at Sutton Council's Development Committee. Others urged the audience to write to Sutton Council and the Mayor of London.
Five days later, on a freezing cold snowy night an excellent number motivated activists took part in our protest. Reports are appearing all over the place, the first one I have noticed is on Inside Croydon.
