East London gardeners march to Olympic site to demonstrate "disquiet" over plans for the Games

Allotment holders who are being evicted to make way for the Olympic Park in east London have staged a final protest against the development.

Gardeners from the Manor Garden allotments marched from Hackney Town Hall to the Olympic Park gates after packing up their tools on Sunday. The workers said they were demonstrating their “disquiet and distrust of the promised benefits the Olympics are claimed to bring.”

The plot holders are being moved to a temporary site, but have been told they can return to Hackney Wick when the Games are over.
