Homeless mothers in Stratford, east London, occupied Newham council’s housing offices and the East Thames Housing Association building last Saturday.

The women and their children are staying in what is supposed to be temporary accommodation at the East Thames-run Focus E15 hostel. They are demanding the right to permanent social housing in London.
