This follows the public meeting that angrily opposed the filming of Channel 4’s “Immigration Street” in Southampton. The programme is their latest ‘reality’ TV attack on the poor and downtrodden after the vile “Benefit Street”.
The Socialist Party and TUSC have put forward the alternative “Solidarity Street” campaign. Our campaign has been well received, and has made important links with community activists.
One local resident said, “We have lived together peacefully for many years, so why are they doing this now?” The programme will be televised shortly before the general election. Could this have something to do with it?
