Ocean View residents are frustrated!

AEC Solidarity Press Release
Venue: Meeting at Ocean View Multi Purpose Centre
Date/Time: Wednesday night — 28 April 2010 —-7:30pm

The Ocean View flats are totally overcrowded, as is the Atlantic Heights informal settlement. People are frustrated at having been promised housing for years but nothing has ever been delivered.

The people are sick and tired of what the flats committee is doing. People need to put bungalows in the yards because 12-15 people stay in one bedroom here but the Flats Committee then calls the law enforcement to break down the bungalows.

People are frustrated about the promised housing project in nearby Mountain View. Mayor Dan Plato promised last November to start building it within three months. But nothing at all has happened since then. They said they would consider hundreds of backyard dwellers who live in Ocean View.

Silvertown Anti-Eviction Campaign will also be attending the meeting.
