The Big Issue
Suited and booted guests endured shouts of “shame on you” from protesters as they made their way inside.
Kwajo Tweneboa, a housing activist and housing association tenant, told The Big Issue he considered the protest a success.
“I was disgusted at the CEOs walking past and laughing at us protesting for decent housing provided by them, meanwhile they spent £4,000 on tables, no doubt funded by the rent we pay. Completely immoral and inhumane,” he said.
“Just goes to show how little they care, but well done to everyone that came out.”
Ahead of making their way to the hotel, protesters gathered at North Greenwich station to hold a mock awards ceremony, presenting golden toilets to councils and housing associations for their poor records.
