Axe the Housing Act: March for safer homes, 1 July 2017

Subject: Safe homes for all - march 1 July, film night 4 July, meeting 12 July

The terrible Grenfell fire and the failed response of local and national
Government, is now exposing the lethal mix of cuts, neglect and refusal
to listen to residents,  across Britain.  In hundreds of meetings,
people are attempting to hold landlords to account and force them to
act. Several councils have committed to fit sprinklers in all tower
blocks: these include Birmingham, Sheffield, Croydon, Southampton.

  Housing is now high on the public and political agenda, and will be a
key theme of the Peoples Assembly march this Saturday 1st July.  We will
assemble with other housing groups from 12 noon outside BBC Great
Portland St W1A 1AA, and give out our new leaflet -

We are co-sponsoring a London-wide meeting 12 July on Grenfell and fire
safety, with Matt Wrack of Fire Brigades union, Kevin Courtney of
Teachers union, tenant groups and campaigners - see leaflet:
.  Please invite local residents and others concerned to secure justice
for Grenfell and safety in our homes, schools and hospitals.

And on 4 July 6.30pm you are invited to a book launch and film night,
for a free showing of Ken Loach's classic 'Cathy Come Home', at the
Genesis Cinema  93-95 Mile End Rd, London E1 4UJ. Book a free ticket
  Combine a relaxed social event with some serious talk.  All welcome

Next open organising meeting 22 July 11am venue to be confirmed.  Notes
from last organising meeting here:

If you want leaflets for your local campaign, or speakers and help
organising local events, please email or call on 07432 098440.  Help
build the housing movement to win safe, secure homes for all.
Best wishes
Eileen Short
