This feature length documentary presents the inside story of the No M11 Campaign, recounting 15 months of direct action against one of the most controversial schemes in the history of British road-building; the battle for Wanstead’s George Green, the Wanstonia eviction and the celebrated roof top protests of 1994. Against a backdrop of growing resistance to the Criminal Justice Act it charts the emergence of CLAREMONT ROAD as an extraordinary symbol of cultural defiance & for the first time tells the story of what became the most expensive eviction in British history. Featuring the music of The Levellers, Zion Train & The Clash.
