Protesters plan to blockade Boris Johnson from annual property conference
15th October 2014

Protesters are taking over an annual property trade show to campaign against unaffordable housing in London.

The group is aiming to block roads around the Mipim conference to prevent Boris Johnson attending the event.

About 4,000 property delegates are expected to attend the show in Olympia.

The campaign group includes protesters against anti-gentrification, empty home protesters, unions and residents and aims to highlight the rising cost of housing arguing developers are pricing people out of the market.

The Mayor of London is set to make an opening address. Protesters are using #BlockBoris as part of the campaign. 

Executive of the Evening Standard, James Ashton; Heather Kennedy of DIGS and Hammersmith and Fulham Council Leader, Stephen Cowan discuss on Headline London.

Comedy Editor of the Huffington Post UK, Andrea Mann; Comedian, Bec Hill and Broadcaster Chuck Thomas discuss on Not The One Show.
