The people vs Leeds City Council this Wednesday

Two separate campaigns fighting the Council's undemocratic and ill-thought
plans for Little London and Woodhouse will unite on Wednesday in an
unprecedented show of strength.

At 12pm this Wednesday, (17 May), Leeds City Council will face the
unprecedented wrath of two communities outside its offices as residents of
Little London and Woodhouse stage a public lobby against the Council's
latest bonkers regeneration plans.

Save Little London campagners will gather to demand that Leeds City Council
immediately suspends its privatisation plans for their estate that will see
435 council homes sold off or demolished and hundreds of tenants forced to
leave their homes and community.

Friends of Woodhouse Moor will also be there, calling on the Council to put
a stop to the LUDICROUS plans to build a short-stay car park on part of
Woodhouse Moor despite furious opposition of the local community.

The separate lobbies have been called to pressure the monthly Council
Executive meeting (1pm) at which councillors will decide whether to or not
to go ahead with both the £85m Private Finance Initiative (PFI) scheme for
Little London, and proceed with the crazy car park.

It is gonna be a media fest - the more people, the more opposition, the more
unity across our campaigns, the more likely we can win together.

Campaigners are asking for supporters to come down to Leeds Civic Hall on
Wednesday to show their solidarity with the people and their opposition to
the Council.
