Peoples’ Parliament – Lotus River


Recorded on-site from the streets of Lotus River, which have had a long battle for basic services. Among them properties damaged by water due to problems with the drainage system, while more people are forced to live in backyards, and have to contend with gang violence that threatens to flare up at any moment.

Guests include:

  • Rashaad Allen – member of the Foundation for Positive Change
  • Bishop Paul Philips – Parkwood activist
  • Henry Hendricks – manager of Anne’s Toddlers and Welfare Centre
