ROOF TOP DEMO GAINS “JUSTICE NOT CRISIS” MORE SUPPORT

Posted on September 2, 2008. Filed under: Housing News |

JUSTICE NOT CRISIS held a roof top protest on Monday 1st September to highlight the councils refusal to work with the housing associations and use the governments £100m grant to build 2,000 new homes for social rent.

The demonstrtion took place on the side of the Town Hall where campaigners held a banner with the slogan

£100M AVAILABLE     30,000 ON WAITING LIST

SO SELL THE LAND AT AN AFFORDABLE PRICE

Other campaignes displayed more banners and handed out information sheets to people passing.

Central TV carried the story.

The demonstration was very peaceful and there were no arrests.

ive been on the council housing list for nearly two years and i got offered a run down flat in a derelict building in sparkbrook, it had damp all up the walls and was in a terrible state, to be honest i was discusted, i wouldnt put an animal in there never mind a human being so i am completly behind you.

i was walking through the city centre on Monday morning and i recieved one of your flyers, i am in total agreement with you and fully support all that you are doing to resolve this issue

can you please let me know if you have anymore up coming demonstrations as i fully support what you are doing and would like to join you on the next one.
