Open Our Towpath Campaign

A campaign group has been formed to protest against the closure of the towpath from the A11 to the A12. Protests have been held on the last two Sundays by the barrier opposite Wick Village, and more are planned for the future.

It has reported in the Guardian on local resident  Dave Hill's blog and the Guardian bike blog  and Paul Owen's Olympic blog. The Hackney Gazette and Hackney Citizen wrote about it. It was mentioned in The New Statesman article Whose Olympics are they anyway? Hackney Tours have written about the closure on their blog Sport suffers by the Lee as Olympic Security Zone Expands. There have also been many other press mentions, please see Open Our Towpath press page for more links.

German and Russian television, German radio and a Brazilian newspaper have also been down and reported on the towpath closure and protest.

There will be an Open our Towpath meeting tonight at The Electric Matchbox cafe on White Post Lane at 8pm. All welcome to come and discuss your views.
