The Athlone Anti-Eviction Campaign was established in 2002 to assist the residents of the Athlone area. We have been fighting water cuts, defending illegal occupations and the non-removal of the Gatesville hawkers, promoting free education for youth, public housing efforts and the scrapping of arrears. It has been very long now and our forefathers own the houses that we are living in today.
