Solidarity chain linking the 1km distance from an overcrowded hostel in Newham (Brimstone House) to the hundreds of empty homes on a council estate around the corner (Carpenters Estate). A council estate right next to the Olympic stadium where 400 flats have been left empty to rot for over 13 years.

Newham council has the worst record on homelessness in the country and one of the highest mortality rates for COVID 19 – how dare the Labour council leave homes empty during a pandemic.
