London’s housing is under attack. As developers - hand in glove with councils and housing associations - demolish necessary social housing to replace it with unaffordable apartments, more people are now standing up for their rightful place in their city.

Jasmin and other families in the Focus E15 hostel were threatened with being moved outside London. They fought and are now rehoused locally but their fight is not over. The keyworkers rent in West Ham was going up by 40%… “If you don’t like it you can move out!” Their only recourse was a rent strike.

72 people perished in the Grenfell Tower tragedy. Local people are determined to make sure no council ever ignores the residents’ fears again.

Filmed over four years, We’re Still Here documents the impact of a system that puts profit before people, and those who are fighting back.
