Poster calling attention to the plight of those evicted from the Camden Street Squat, formerly located at 220 Camden High Street. The owner of the building, Joseph Levy (1906-1990), was a wealthy London property developer whose company Stock Conversion helped rebuild the city during the 1950's-60's after WWII. In February 1974, Levy enlisted the help of 100 police officers to evict the occupants of the Camden Street Squat, had the building boarded and locked, leaving numerous families displaced. Levy was despised by the All London Squatters, the group behind Camden Street, and according to their meeting notes (see http://www.wussu.com/squatting/als17024.htm), plans were in motion to picket both his offices as well as the local courts, though they were ultimately unsuccessful in regaining entry into the squat. A rare poster, not listed in OCLC.
