NBTA London; ‘Hands Off Our Homes’ public meeting
Date: Thursday 22 January at 7pm
Where: London Action Resource Centre, 62, Fieldgale Street, E1 1ES
The Canal and Rivers Trust (CRT) is on a mission to make the lives of liveaboards with no homes moorings harder.
They have been meeting with boaters’ groups to try to get an agreement to a defined place and minimum distance that continuous cruisers must travel to comply with the guidance. This – with the lack of mooring rings and facilities – puts us on a path towards the destruction of our way of life. We must stop the CRT in making our lives harder. We need more mooring rings, more facilities and no more increase of mooring restrictions.
The National Bargee Travellers Association London is hosting a public meeting about the attacks on boater dwellers and discussion about what we should do about it. We have also invited some speakers from the wider housing movement so we can get ideas about what can be done to defend our homes.
All are welcome.
