Community Activists Network
Okay, forget the fact this article is from a Skyscraper enthusiasts website (!) - it's a fascinating read, and shows how people don't need to be organised to within an inch of their lives by governments, they organise themselves. Yes, there is activity which may possibly infringe people's human rights - certainly I can see my local community safety partnership doling out ASBOs left, right and centre - but these people took care of themselves and their own - isn't that the Big Society? <whistles>
Doubtless, transplanted to the UK, the people at the top would be courted by politicians and media as 'community leaders' - and this really is Your Square Mile (smaller in fact - 33,000 residents in 0.01 sq mile according to Wiki, bigger numbers quoted on the website) - Paul Twivy, eat your heart out!
