Over 100 people came to a meeting on London’s Housing crisis called by Waltham Forest and Redbridge trades councils on Wednesday of last week.
The meeting was addressed by Eileen Short from Defend Council Housing and Rosie Walker from a local private renters group.
Labour councillors supported calls for rent controls and more council housing. Many tenants voiced frustration with Labour. Ben Morris from the NUT said that “the meeting shows the potential for a movement across London.”
