Disabled tenants of Amicus Horizon housing association in Hastings demonstrated on Monday against threats of eviction, bullying and a policy of refusing to do repairs for tenants they are in dispute with.

Protesters gathered at Amicus Horizon’s office, marched to the town hall and then on to the seafront. They received a warm response.

Right to Work secretary Chris Bambery addressed the rally—many protesters are joining the demonstration at the Tory conference in Birmingham
