Save Hamilton House
We the undersigned will campaign to stop backdoor, profit motivated development of our community buildings. We demand that Hamilton House be sold into community ownership for the benefit of its community to protect Bristol’s creative and community led culture. #savehamiltonhouse [email protected]
Why is this important?
Please Watch this video to help you understand the project and what is at stake.
Not only have we recently lost two amazing organisations in Stokes Croft, Jacknife and Mark My Words, but now there is an immediate threat to Hamilton House being gentrified through the backdoor with artist studios and community businesses being developed into flats. The landlord has handed a vacant possession order to the building manager Coexist CIC for August 11th 2017, making 300 artists and another 400 people working in valuable creative and community activity without a legal contract or any guaranteed security for the future. Since then 200 people have been evicted fromthe rear block in the building and Coexist CIC, the organisation that was brought to life this project have been told they will not see their lease renewed. We need to protect these community buildings. Sign the petition. Act Now!
