Demand an end to the housing crisis: join the March for Homes

On Saturday 31 January 2015, people are meeting in East London and South London to march on Boris in City Hall to demand better homes for Londoners and an end to the housing crisis.

Join the Focus E15 mothers and campaigners, unions and housing groups across London as they call for:

Rent controls
Hands off council housing
A stop to demolition of quality council homes
Affordable and secure homes for all
Cuts to rents not benefits
An end to the bedroom tax and welfare caps
Building of new council houses
Better pay and conditions and better housing services

The East London march is led by community campaigns from across the area, including the Focus E15 mothers. The route will run from Shoreditch via Brick Lane to the Mayor's Office at City Hall.

The March for Homes is supported by hundreds of groups and individuals including Unite Housing Workers, People's Assembly (London), Defend Council Housing, DPAC, Generation Rent, St. Mungo's Broadway, Hackney Digs, Tower Hamlets Renters, the Focus E15 campaign and many more. You can see a list of supporters here.
