Following the recent residents and local teachers' resistance to the privatised Wembley Ark Academy school plans, this morning an independent group of "concerned citizens" re-occupied the Wembley Park Sports Ground.

Last week saw the end of the two-year Tent City Occupation campaign that was trying to save the Wembley Park Sports Ground from the hands of the private investor Ark, who plan to build a privatised school on the site and gain control of the last remaining playing fields in the area.

A number of international "concerned citizens" opposed to school privatisation in the UK and across the world re-occupied the land early this morning .

The inital phone call this morning stated this is a fight to save the local sports ground and make a stand against school privatisation in Wembley and across the country.

The camp is now officially open. Fancy a build up to Climate Camp. Fancy a place after Climate Camp. All are welcome
