New Hampstead Heath Community Occupation

 
The Occupy Nomad camp in London has just arrived and are building a new space for political discussion in Hampstead Heath – the Vale of Health, which is managed by the City of London Corporation. [1] The City of London have continually courted controversy from plans to commercialise the supposed ‘public’ space from dog walkers, swimmers and local residents. [3]
The new camp has been set up overnight – aiming to reach out to the community to talk about shared concerns as they have in other spaces in Tower Hamlets and Hackney. There are currently around 15 tents and more on the way.
Spread the word. Urgent help is needed – if you can help or just wish to get involved then bring yourselves, your tents, your books and your ideas.
How to get in touch:
  • Visit: Nearest tube Hampstead. Walk out of Hampstead Heath tube and go up the hill. Go to the Vale of Health – to do this, walk pas the caravan park, following the path. The path swings round the left then it comes up through some treets. Then you will see the camp.
  • Camp phone: 07763687412
