Living Rent campaign meeting 4th May – Joint Action Plan

working together….

At the ‘Housing in Crisis’ meeting, we agreed to work together to fight against the decimation of social housing, soaring private rents and homelessness.
We know there are plenty of solutions to the problems but so far no political will. There is a determination to sell off what is left of social housing and an obsession with home ownership, most of which is beyond the reach of ordinary people.
Please come along on Wednesday and bring your ideas for a plan of action.

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.
