On Saturday 26th 11,30am, we have a Homes For All workshop on the government’s planned White Paper, and how to raise objections effectively. The meeting will be held online via Zoom and all are welcome. Sign up to our mailing list to receive invitation details.
The gloomy prospect of job losses and the resumption of evictions and home repossessions, makes it more important to organise opposition and demand action. Please support the Generation Rent petition on ending the rent debt crisis: https://www.generationrent.org/coronavirusdebt
On Wednesday 16th September from 11am – 12.30pm, we are co-ordinating a “No Evictions” protest in Parliament Square, to coincide with Prime Minister’s Question Time.
The government said “no-one will lose their home because of a pandemic”. But unless it changes course, that’s what will start happening on Monday 21st September, when courts are due to begin eviction cases again. We’ve heard vague noises about more protection for tenants, but nothing definite, so it’s time to make our voices heard.
We hope MPs will ask questions about how we avoid what Shelter has called the threat of a “tidal wave” of homelessness.
The protest will be socially-distanced and people are encouraged to wear a face mask. Bring your banner or signs.
On Thursday 17th September, we’re holding an online public meeting to discuss how to build the No Evictions campaign, with Generation Rent, Ian Hodson of the Bakers Union, housing workers, John McDonnell MP and others.
The meeting will be live streamed on our Facebook page and YouTube channel, with questions and comments welcome.
