NEWS: Save Queen's Market
Nothing irkes me more than when I come across a group of regular folks working hard to earn their weekly crust being stamped on by big business.
Queen's Market is located in Upton Park, East London and is 'London's most ethnically diverse market'. The market is under threat from St Modwen Properties Plc but this Saturday you can register your support in what is being billed as 'A postive and peaceful rally against corporate greed.'
Venue: Queen's Market, Upton Park (next to the tube station)
Date: Saturday 16th September 2006

Interestingly, The New Economics Foundation recently produced a report showing that:
London's street and farmers markets are a powerful local economic force driving London's local economies, providing affordable healthy food and play a key part in the fight back against clone town Britain.A worthy cause.
