Housing Activists Film Night
Saturday 26th April, 7:30pm
St Matthew’s Tenants Hall, 10 St Matthews Road, Brixton, SW2 1NH
Let us know you’re coming on facebook

A night of films celebrating the struggle for decent housing in our communities (part of the Radical Housing Weekender).

As the housing crisis in the capital deepens – with homelessness on the rise, one in ten London homes overcrowded, rents far outstripping earnings, and private landlords running amok – join us at St. Matthew’s Tenants Hall for a reminder of what can be achieved through collective action against these problems.

We will be showing a series of short films which give an insight into housing activism, past and present, and aim to provide acknowledgement and encouragement both to those who are precariously housed and those fighting to combat this social ill.

The films will show contemporary projects, such as the campaign to save and expand social housing in Cressingham Gardens, and inspirational historical examples, such as the co-operative living spaces established by the Brixton Faeries in the 1970s.

In addition to the short film screenings, there will be an opportunity to hear from activists and local residents and, most importantly, for discussion. There will be people from a number of different housing campaigning organizations in Brixton the E15 mothers a group of 29 young mothers organising’ to stop the hostel they live in being closed are coming to say a bit about their campaign. We will more during the week.

The films should be interesting but just as important is the opportunity for us all to spend some time socializing and having fun.

There are drinks at the bar.

Protest – No To Clapham Park Evictions
Monday 31st March, 11.30 am
Clapham Park Offices, 91 New Park Road, SW2 4AX

Organised by Lambeth Housing Activists

What would you do if suddenly you and your family were forced out of your home after three years? Would you allow landlords to kick you down and let the council leave you to rot in temporary accommodation miles from your community? Would you stand up? Then stand up with us too!

Join us and Lambeth Housing Activists to support a recently evicted tenant to make a public complaint to Metropolitan Homes and Lambeth Council – we ask, why should a family be evicted from their home and yet the flat remains empty? Why is there a shortage of quality, secure, and truly affordable housing in Lambeth?

What are the priorities of this council and these landlords? Housing for homes, not as assets! Stop the gentrification of Brixton!

[UPDATE: Metropolitan backed down on 4th April and agreed to rehouse Ester in Clapham Park. More details here. Thanks to everyone who supported the campaign]
