Fighting for decent housing

Issue No. 2289

Defend Council Housing’s Housing Emergency campaign has launched an open statement against cuts to housing benefits and huge council rent rises.

It is supported by the general secretaries of the Unite, GMB and Ucatt unions, as well as the National Private Tenants’ Association, Disabled People Against Cuts, former mayor of London Ken Livingstone, Adrian Mitchell MP and Cathy Come Home director Ken Loach.

They are also organising a series of public meetings around Britain to campaign for decent housing.
