Join thousands on Sunday 13th March for a massive demonstration to oppose the Tories’ disastrous Housing and Planning Bill, and demand:
Secure Homes For All – Control Rents – Homes for People not Profit.
The demonstration starts at Lincoln’s Inn Fields at midday, and will end in Parliament Square.
The Tories are pushing through legislation that rather than addressing or solving the housing crisis, will make it much worse.
The Housing Bill aims to destroy council housing and will hit everyone on an ordinary income – it will mean higher rents, less security, and less chance of a home you can afford.
The Bill condemns millions to a lifetime of insecure, expensive private renting. Everyone deserves a decent home: but landlords, developers and the rich will be the only ones to benefit from this bill. We must Kill the Bill!
ROUTE OF THE DEMO: The demo assembles Lincoln’s Inn Fields at 12pm. The march will go down Aldwych, south over Waterloo Bridge, along York Road on the south side of the river, north over Westminster Bridge. Rally in Parliament Square at 3pm. Ends 4pm. There is a shorter, accessible march leaving from Downing St at 1.30pm.
