Southwark teachers: help kill The Housing Bill

Dear all,
I’m forwarding the latest from the Kill the Housing Bill Campaign, but before I do so please look at this Observer/Guardian online article today on Pay to Stay and the very good Camden campaign meeting:

Kill the Housing Bill – secure homes for all

Campaigning is gearing up with some brilliant meetings this week, and more news coverage of the Housing Bill (see links below). Packed meetings in Islington and Camden (north London) both set up local Kill the Housing Bill groups and are organising stalls, leafletting, posters and an estates road show.
The Housing Bill is now going through the House of Lords, with over 300 amendments tabled – see Bill progress A report of the Campaign evidence to the Lords will now go to all Lords and to MPs. Get in touch if you can help email more Lords, and please send the Report of evidence out to your contact lists, members and local media: Kill the Housing Bill evidence to the Lords

Support is growing fast for the 13 March national march against the Housing Bill, for secure homes and rent controls. Here’s a poster and leaflet ( to be updated this week). Latest supporters include Unison trade union, Morning Star newspaper and Haldane Society of Socialist Lawyers. The leader of Camden Council said this week: ‘Everyone should go on this march’. Join and invite people on Facebook:
National Demo: March For Homes – Against The Housing Bill

And share or circulate the on line petition – get in touch if you want print copies of this, or leaflets and posters.

Our next organising meeting is Monday 22nd Feb 7pm (venue to be confirmed) – please send in reports and suggestions even if you can’t get along.

Keep spreading the word – let’s beat this Bill!
