Housing Week of Action

So Radical Housing Network have been busy. What was going to be a week of action is far exceeding that, and more events by the day...

Across London people are fighting high rents, evictions, gentrification and destruction of their homes and communities. Tenants and renters groups, community groups, trade unions and
more are building a movement to demand: HOMES FOR PEOPLE NOT PROFIT.

Mon Feb 23rd: BLOCK THE BUDGET
Where? City Hall, London
When? Meet 9am to demand Social Housing Not Social Cleansing! at our family and photo-friendly protest while Boris and his chums get together to vote through his £1.8bn budget. If this budget passes it will mean continuing rent hikes, further sell-offs of public land to private developers and more "affordable" housing that we can't afford. Its a recipe for bigger profits for landlords and developers, and more social cleansing and homelessness for ordinary Londoners. #BlockTheBudget
