Friday 1st April 2016 “Kill the Housing and Planning Bill!”

Please do make every effort to join our short protest rally outside Sheffield Town Hall this Friday at 5.30pm and stand together against the Tories’ disastrous attack on social housing. 27% of Tory MPs are registered as “landlords” so guess who benefits from this Bill! We are ALL suffering from the housing crisis – grown up children still living  at home, sky high rents, acute shortage of social housing etc. It’s time we stood up and demanded better! (rally expected to finish before 6.30pm)
