Anarchist activists are organising what they call “the decisive battle against gentrification” - and it appears Foxtons is in the firing line.
In a message on the group’s website, the Class War anarchist organisation has posted a message: “Meet at 5pm @ Foxtons Islington Estate Agents, 355 Upper Street, Islington, N1 0PD.”
It concludes by telling supporters more information will be announced soon, and urges them to “bring noise!” to the protest.
A Class War demo outside Boris Johnson’s home in Islington last month resulted in three Foxtons staff - described by the group as “drunken tosser estate agents” - being dismissed.
The London agency - which issued a profits warning shortly after the result of the EU referendum, and is forecasting a difficult autumn and winter because of the capital’s housing market problems - is no stranger to controversy.
In spring 2015 some of the glass window fronting Foxtons’ Brixton office was broken and ‘Yuppies Out’ was graffiti’ed on the building. A month later the same branch was targeted again with more low-level vandalism.
