‪London protest for ‪90-year-old Arrested For Feeding Homeless‬ – Trews Reports (E6)‬

I went along to the US Embassy last Saturday for the first of what will become a regular peaceful demonstration in solidarity with Arnold Abbott and against homeless hate laws. This is an issue not just in the US but increasingly in London.

There’s more info about the regular Saturday 2pm protests on Streets Kitchen.

The fight for the New Era Estate Hoxton

Here’s a short doc I made for Russell Brand’s Trews Reports about the situation on the New Era Estate in Hoxton .

Then last Saturday the residents of the New Era organised a day of action where eviction notices were served upon Benyon Estates and one of Edward Benyon’s homes.

Here’s a column about New Era in The Guardian

Nick doc at the East End Film Festival


The documentary about Nick Papadimitriou that I have blogged about here many a time, the London Perambulator is now finished and will be screening as part of the East End Film Festival at the Whitechapel Gallery Wed 29th April at 7pm. After the screening there will be a panel discussion with the greats of psychgeography and to appease Nick we’ll also say ‘Deep Topography” (in the doc you can see Iain Sinclair enthusiastically signing up to Deep Topography and renouncing psychogeography) – Will Self, Iain Sinclair, Andrea Philips and myself – although I’ll probably end up just listening to those three.

As well as footage from walks I’ve done with Nick over the past year it features fantastic interviews with Russell Brand, Will Self and Iain Sinclair.
Book your tickets here
I’ve just found out that the film has also been nominated for the International Film Guide Inspiration award for Best Documentary Feature
