Over 160 people packed a Camden Benefit Justice meeting on Thursday. Tenants, parents, trade unionists, disabled people are planning a march through Camden on 23rd March, a network to resist evictions, and pressure on the Council and other landlords not to evict anyone in arrears due to Benefit cuts.
With many families losing £300 per week due to the benefit cap – Camden plan to relocate 761 families more than 200 miles away.
Benefit Justice campaigns are spreading fast and with a bit of organising, every area could see meetings like this.
The national Campaign for Benefit Justice summit event on 9 March in central London, will bring together tenants, disabled people, trade unions, the unpaid and the low paid. It is supported by PCS and Unite unions alongside Defend Council Housing, Disabled People Against Cuts, tenants and community organisations, Right to Work and Unite the Resistance
