March For Homes – 24th June

Justice for Grenfell

Join the protest March for Homes Saturday 24 June 2017 12 noon Parliament Square SW1P 3AD

The terrible Grenfell fire shows the murderous result of housing policies dictated by profit and greed. Tenants die because landlords don’t listen. Everyone needs a home they can afford. Government continues to destroy council housing. Street homeless and insecurity is soaring, and millions are trapped in expensive, insecure private renting. People pay over half their income in rent – while landlords and developers get tax breaks and subsidies. Opposition in and outside Parliament stalled much of the Housing and Planning Act 2016, including Pay to Stay and sell off of council homes on the open market. But the Act is law, and is still a threat. A united housing movement needs to challenge the weak Government, take direct action and force the changes we need.

Axe the Act

Kill the Housing Bill campaign update…

The Housing and Planning Bill is now the Housing and Plannng Act.

The ‘Kill the Housing Bill’ campaign, an alliance of tenants of all tenures, trade unionists, politicians and housing activists, has now agreed to rename itself ‘Axe the Housing Act’. The focus of the campaign will be building a national network of local groups committed to raising awareness of the threat and uniting opposition to it.

There will be a second national demonstration on the:

18th of June assembling at 12 noon from Hyde Park corner London.

The Act limped through Parliament 12 May (read Act here ), but will not be in force till April 2017; much of its detail is not yet agreed.   Most people still don’t know about the end of building homes for rent, sell offs of council homes, pay to stay tenant tax, de-regulation of housing associations, failure to control private rents, and make it easier to demolish and clear estates.

Housing In Crisis meeting 26_4

Our housing rights are under attack – now more than ever before.

Over the past decades we have faced sky-high house prices, soaring rents

 

and now the social cleansing of our cities, with benefits for those in need capped and cut. There is less and less help for the increasing number who find themselves homeless. Deaths on the streets are becoming commonplace.

Why is it happening? And what can we do about it? Join in the discussion.
