Love and power

When I visited the eco-village at Kew Bridge, I noticed this quote painted by the gate. For the past six months the protestors have been occupying land by the river which the property company St George PLC would like to turn into gated apartments for the rich, despite the community credentials which they claim (yes, the company sponsors Brentford Football Club) on the hoardings outside (see below).Eco-village activists talk on youtube about their reasons for occupying the site, and there’s a facebook group as well.

I took the pictures, and they’re published here under a Creative Commons licence.
