Building solidarity

... rather than playing into that eminently regeneration game of 'sustainable communities' and 'dangerous classes', it seems to me that the whole idea of a 'People's Plan' needs to be predicated on contact and awareness between the many different groups and individuals in this area who have the most to lose from the Olympics happening.

And this means categorically prioritising activities that stand to build solidarity in our neighbourhoods and with the people who have neither a voice in the popular press nor in campaigning groups like this, for many reasons.

Without this kind of co-ordination, understanding and resolve, we can write objections to planning applications till we're blue in the face.
