London Coalition Against Poverty

Stop attacks on tenants – Build council homes

Protest at Downing St 12.30 pm, on Wednesday the 15 December. Meet on Whitehall opposite Downing St. Nearest tube Westminster.

• CAP RENTS NOT HOUSING BENEFIT
• HANDS OFF OUR SECURITY – NO MEANS TESTS
• NO EVICTIONS DUE TO CUTS IN HOUSING BENEFIT
• OPPOSE 80% MARKET RENTS
• BUILD NEW AND IMPROVED COUNCIL HOUSING

Government proposals to cut housing benefit, force rents up to 80% of
market levels, and remove security of tenure for new tenants will
increase fear and insecurity, rent arrears, evictions and homelessness.
They want to drive more into private renting and destroy the principles
of public housing. We want secure and stable mixed communities – not
poverty traps and transit camps.

Housing Emergency is bringing together organisations and individuals to
oppose attacks on Housing Benefit, rents and secure tenancies, and for
investment in new and improved council and affordable secure rented
homes

Supported by, House of Commons Council Housing Group; Defend
Council Housing; Unite, GMB, Public and Commercial Services trade
unions; Barking & Dagenham Council; Leeds Tenants Federation; Tower
Hamlets Tenants Federation; London Coalition Against Poverty; Right to
Work Campaign; Labour Representation Committee; Disabled People
Against Cuts.
