Call for Action to Target London Landmark Political Institutions as a part of International Day
02 October 2006
 

This morning a demonstration outside the London Development Agency took place at 9.30am, at their new offices at 197 Blackfriars Road. A further unauthorised press conference outside the Greater London Authority will commence from 11am, today.

Olympic Legacy:

Olympic Development Agency and the Democratic Values of GLA and LDA

The consultation period was typified by a lack of public debate and input. Both the LDA and London 2012 claim to have run a thorough and successful community consultation process during the two years between the bid announcement and London ’winning’ the 2012 Games. These claims can be challenged in many ways, almost all of which highlight the undemocratic nature and tokenism of the consultation.

The press conference is part of a weekend of events in London. The London meetings coincide with actions around the world, coordinated by the Habitat International Coalition, on the impacts of market finance on human habitat.
