Maite De La Calva and her lawyer, Emma Norton from Liberty, met Wandsworth Council today and were told that the Council are not going to go ahead with the eviction process they started straight after last summer's riots. Maite and her eight year old daughter were to be evicted because of her son's minor involvement in the Clapham Junction riot.
However other political evictions are threatened and Wandsworth Against Cuts and the anti-eviction campaigners will organise further activities against these.
Maite's victory is a credit to her own courage and honesty faced with a very stressful situation. It was helped by her many supporters on the Doddington Estate, by the work of Wandsworth Against Cuts, Defend Council Housing and Liberty, as well as the support of Battersea & Wandsworth Trades Council, local residents, trade unionists and socialists.
