Block the Budget: End the Housing Crisis
Mayor Boris Johnson is the most powerful politician in London when it comes to decisions about housing, with control over a £1.8bn budget for delivering new homes and hundreds of hectares of public land. His budget goes to the vote on 23 February and if passed, will mean more sky-high rents, sell-offs of the public land we need to build council housing and ‘affordable’ housing that most people can’t afford. It’s a recipe for bigger profits for landlords and developers, and more social cleansing and homelessness for ordinary Londoners.
The Radical Housing Network is calling a week of action in the run-up to the vote - 14th to 23rd February - culminating in a mass action on 23 February to Block the Budget. For more details, please see our Events page.
