Mayday Zoom Rally!

Friday 1st May marks the annual international day of worker solidarity. In this spirit, we are coming together with our comrades in renters movements from across the world in our first ever online video rally!

We’ll be hearing about the struggles renters face in this worldwide pandemic with evictions, job losses and rent debt, but also the inspirational stories of how they’ve all been fighting back! 

Many of you will know already the work we’ve been doing helping our members through this crisis. From getting rent reductions, resisting illegal evictions and getting the Mayor onside with our demands, we’ve been busy. 

However, we know there are still many renters in London  struggling with job losses, rent debt and threats of evictions so we are stepping our campaigning. 

So come to the zoom rally on Friday to find out about our further plans to get rents suspended, get rent control and make the evictions ban permanent.
