Sick of high rents and rip-off letting agent fees? Want to take action for change? Come along to our skillshare on Saturday 6 April at St George’s Town Hall, 236 Cable Street, Shadwell, London, E1 0BL (map), 2 – 5.30pm.
On Saturday 27 April, private tenant groups are planning protest actions against letting agencies. We want to end bogus and opportunistic letting agent fees which are often charged on top of rent and deposits, and challenge the role of letting agents in pushing up rents.
The ‘Let Down’ campaign now has its own blogspace: http://letdownblog.wordpress.com/
To prepare the day of action and to strengthen the grassroots movement of tenants in London, London Renters are holding an open skillshare on Saturday 6 April. Everybody is welcome, whether you’re brand new to housing politics or want to get actively involved in your local renter group (please find a list of already existing groups below).
There’ll be workshops covering:
- setting up a local renter group and getting more people involved
- organising a protest action
- social media: using the web for effective campaigning
- producing banner and placards
- documenting protest actions
If you’d like to lead on a topic at the Skills Share, then just let us know: firstname.lastname@example.org
