The Anti-Olympic Poverty Torch relay – more details

Standard

The Vancouver Olympic Poverty torch in Glasgow

In case anyone missed my last post, here is a reminder that CON is still looking for runners and cyclists to take part in two short relays over the next week, of about 4 miles each. The main development in the last few days is that we have been able to confirm receptions with two local campaigns:

Saturday 21st July (i.e. tomorrow). Meeting at central Stratford (i.e. outside tube station) at 1.30 for an intended 2pm start. We will pass the Fred Wigg Tower and the missile battery and end at Wanstead Flats, where there will be a welcome for us hosted by the Save Wanstead Flats capaign.

Friday 27th July. Meeting at the cafe at Stoke Newington’s Clissold Park at 1.30 for an intended 2pm start, ending at Leyton Marsh, where there will be a welcome for us hosted by Save Leyton Marsh.

I gather we can also expect a bicycle escort from the Metropolitan police.

If any reader would like to join in, best to email me at davidkrenton[at]gmail.com or call me on 0777[seven]671381.
