The Hackney Flotilla on 13th June was a great success with 45 boats and 13-16 smaller boats (tenders, rowing boats) and over 1000 people joining by foot throughout the day at the event.
Our initial goals for the event set out were reached – public awareness, public engagement, community reinforcement and national press. It was in press such as the Guardian, BBC London radio, Hackney Gazette, Waterway World, amongst other press outlets.
CRT hasn’t backed down yet, so we must continue to campaign. If CRT rolls out the mooring restrictions, we encourage disobey them.
Please encourage others to do the same please sign the pledge: MOORING PROTEST PLEDGE | National Bargee Travellers Association – London Branch (wordpress.com)
