Lambeth Pensioners Group hold Windrush Square rally

RALLY: Lambeth Pensioners Action Group

A group of Lambeth Pensioners held a rally in Windrush Square to celebrate age and Black History month.

Older protesters gathered outside the Tate Library on Monday, before a short march to the Tube station and back to the Town Hall, Brixton Hill, for lunch.

Chairwoman Ellin Labethe told the Blog: “We’re setting our our concerns as old people. We want it to be recognised, we want decent health care and social care.

“We challenge the government, both locally and nationally, who are cutting our benefits. We want to show that we actually give more into society than we take out.”
