just been down to the site and it’s great, a very friendly bunch of local people camping out in the cold, cooking together-it was delicious-looking at the stars together,trying to remember the constellations and generally having a laugh.
what an excellent way to protest and bring the inadequacies of brums housing to the public’s attention.
good on the lot of you!
