Hands shoot into the air to signify assent by St. Pancras tenants to the resolution
Hands shoot into the air to signify assent by St. Pancras tenants to the resolution condemning Tory rent policy and determination to continue the struggle against high rents and the intimidation of tenants.
On the rostrum is Councillor Charles Taylor, chairman of the St. Pancras United Tenants Association.
The meeting took place at Silverdale House, one of the two blocks of St. Pancras (London) flats that were the scene a few days ago of demonstrations following the eviction of two tenants. - 25th September 1960
Kori Bustard with Pale Chanting Goshawks
Southern Pale Chanting Goshawks (Melierax canorus) and a Kori Bustard (Ardeotis kori) wait for an opportunity to snatch prey which may escape the clutches of a Honey Badger (Mellivora capensis) whilst it is foraging for food. This behaviour is called Commensalism. The Kori Bustard is using a threat display in an effort to intimidate the Goshawks. Photographed in Etosha National Park, Namibia, Southern Africa.
