A Social Cleansing - Gentrification and the Housing Crisis in London

We are in the middle of a growing housing crisis (the UK is in breach of its own United Nations human rights commitment to provide people with adequate homes) which is resulting in a social cleansing of London. This film looks at the West Hendon Estate, Barnet, where over 600 social housing units are being knocked down to make way for 2,000 luxury apartments.
