Victories for council housing

Issue No. 1982

After eight housing ballot victories in the run up to Christmas, it is now time to focus our attention on building for the Defend Council Housing lobby of parliament on 8 February.

We have shown that this is a fight we can win when people are given the opportunity to hear the facts. This lobby is an opportunity to let New Labour know we’re not going to be silent.

In order to keep up the pressure for a change in government policy it is vital that delegations from around Britain come to the lobby.

It’s an opportunity to bring together tenants, trade unionists and councillors from across Britain to put the case to MPs, step up pressure on ministers, and meet together with tenants from around the country.
