[20 JAN 99] CHRISTINE ODDY PRESS RELEASE
Christine Oddy's Practical Backing For Peace Campaigners

Coventry's Euro MP Christine Oddy has backed peace campaigners who have bought a row of six houses in the city which will form a base for their activities and provide a temporary home for refugees.

And she has backed her commitment by investing 50 in loan stock (effectively an interest free long-term loan) which will help to finance the venture.

Ms Oddy will be visiting the project in Stoney Stanton Road on Sunday (24 January) to look at the scale of the work which is planned during the next five years.

It includes renovating one of the houses to become a short stay home for asylum seekers and converting the other five into one unit. This will include an office, meeting place and resource room as well as bedrooms for members of the co-operative which has been formed by members of the former Alvis Peace Camp. The group intend to continue campaigning in the city on peace issues.

Ms Oddy said:

"Campaigning for peace is not always easy as the conflicts over Alvis of job security and military production demonstrated, but I believe this group deserves support in their work to draw attention to issues which are too easily ignored."
