IT was great to read the [online] article (about why Lynn [Chambers] decided to go to the Camp for Climate Action. It was an amazing week of discussions, workshops, music, and most importantly for me, training.

The Camp trained up hundreds of new activists, who, like Lynn and me, will be heading North to shut down Ratcliffe-on-Soar coal-fired powerstation on 17 October.

Hackney’s going to be well represented, and along with other residents, we’re planning to use our creativity to make it a beautiful (and powerful) event.

Anyone interested, head to Climate Camp for more information. See you there!

The coronavirus outbreak meant that the Hackney Citizen was unable to print a monthly newspaper for three months.

We're grateful that we have since been able to resume printing. This would not have been possible without the generosity of our readers, whose donations kept the paper from disappearing completely at a distressing time for residents.

A huge thank you to everyone who gave their time and money to support us through the lockdown, and to those who continue to do so as we slowly recover from the dramatic fall in advertising revenues, on top of the existing challenges threatening the future of local journalism.

A one-off donation or a regular contribution from anyone who can afford it will help our small team keep the newspaper in print and the website running in the coming months and years.

Find out how you can donate.

Thank you for your support, and stay safe.
