More about Beecholme

Beecholme is also the first postwar "mixed development" housing scheme in Hackney, with a mixture of houses and flats with the taller block having five storeys and containing one-bedroom and bedsit accommodation. It is featured in Volume 15 of Hackney History and was the site of Beecholme House, the family home of Maj. John André (d. 1780), who was executed as a British spy in the American War of Independence.

This week the AVAAZ's massive 2 million ACTA petition caused shockwaves in Brussels, and they've just learned that Germany has put ACTA on ice and other governments are close to following suit. 

We are at a tipping point -- let's turn out in thousands to protest or, if you can't be there in person, use the tool on this page to send messages of solidarity to our fellow citizens who are marching through the snow and virtually support our online freedom.

We can also use social media to pile the pressure on key parliamentarians.
