Athlone Anti-Eviction Campaign Press Release

Public Meeting: You Are Invited To Attend!

When: Sunday April 19 at 15h00
Where: BSL (Ex-Service Men’s Club) in Silvertown

The Athlone Anti-Eviction Campaign was established in 2002 to assist the residents of the Athlone area. We have been fighting water cuts, defending illegal occupations and the non-removal of the Gatesville hawkers, promoting free education for youth, public housing efforts and the scrapping of arrears. It has been very long now and our forefathers own the houses that we are living in today.

Please attend the next Athlone Anti-Eviction Campaign meeting on Sunday, April 19, 2009 at 15h00 at the BSL (Ex-Service Men’s Club) in Silvertown. We will be assisting residents by filling out scrapping of arrears forms by municipality bylaws. We will also be assisting people in their applications for Social Relief Grants (R960). If you wish to apply for this grant and are over 18 and meet the requirements, please bring your ID card. Also please attend if you have received a pink letter. We encourage all to attend who want more knowledge about the Athlone Anti-Eviction Campaign and our work.

We are tired of the corruption within the system that allows the rich to become richer and the poor to become poorer. We are tired of the empty election campaign promises. We want results today instead of false promises about the future.

Residents of Athlone and All Media are welcome for comment and attendance this Sunday. The media would be more than welcome as the media plays a vital role in getting our issue and voices heard.
