Local Campaigns: Actions & Events
The March for Homeless took place in Brighton in solidarity with national actions. It has been followed by an 9 day Occupy Democracy Brighton camp -  currently at a secret location to try and provide a safe calm space for those living on the street to get good rest.  Check out this video of the assembly:

There will be an Occupy Democracy occupation in London 1-10th May. More details:
Love Activists Brighton continue to set up regular Pop Up Love Kitchens
Email to join the group email list

Shout out: more coordinators for organising the love kitchen & love kitchen crews. Also for a small accessible central storage space to store the love kitchens dry food & equipment (would need washing up facilities too). Love Activists would also like to organise some direct action/demo and invite other groups to take part raising awareness on homelessness, housing/living costs and legal highs.
