Protesters reoccupied Tony’s cafe in Broadway Market, Hackney, east London on 26 December and, despite developers having removed part of the roof, have been occupying it ever since. They have been repairing the building during the occupation.

The occupation is against the selling of leases originally owned by Hackney council to private developers.

The original occupation had been ended by a raid by police and bailiffs at 6.30am on 21 December. A demonstration called for that evening at the cafe attracted 100 people. A call was put out for anti-privatisation campaigns to mount a joint demonstration at the council meeting on 1 February.
