Save Latin Village ®

One of our main aims is to raise public awareness about the human rights violations occurring at UK’s only Latin Village & the UK’s 2nd largest concentration of Latin Businesses: Pueblito Paisa (Latin Village) in Seven Sisters Indoor Market, in London.

Haringey Council and the London Mayor are the principal stakeholders and they are aware of these violations, yet they have failed to take remedial action. See the published report from the 2019 Wards Corner Scrutiny Review.

We aim to prevent damage from regeneration initiatives to this cultural site that is sacred to the Latin American community . These initiatives attempt to reduce footfall and the vibrancy of the Latin Village. Black and Minority Ethnic social housing residents have been unlawfully evicted from the order land, to make way for zero affordable housing on public sector Transport for London land.

We aim to prevent the demolition process that started before the Compulsory Purchase Order was decided, and we are legally challenging the Secretary of State’s decision. 

We have our own viable Community Plan that has secured funding. Yet Haringey Council still wants to go ahead with their demolition plans. The building is a listed community asset and is locally listed for its architectural merit.

Please sign online petition to support our diverse community.
