Frank Dobson joins tenants and trade unionists protesting against the auctioning of council homes


Tenants and Defend Council Housing activists staged a mock auction of councillors’ homes last Saturday in Kentish Town, north London.

The protest was against auctioning council homes to developers to fund repairs.

People living in homeless accommodation, tenants and trade unionists joined the mock auction, along with Labour MP Frank Dobson and local election candidates.

The campaign has referred the sell offs to the district auditor and plans a “name and shame” campaign for candidates standing in the local and national elections.
