Thousands of demonstrators will to take to the streets of London on Saturday afternoon to demand Mayor Boris Johnson deliver solutions to the capital’s deepening housing crisis.
The March for Homes is a movement backed by various campaign groups, and draws together those opposed to government housing policies, which they say have driven rents to unaffordable levels, undermined social housing and caused a massive increase in homelessness.
One contingent of protesters will assemble at Elephant and Castle in south London, while another sets out from Shoreditch in the East End. Both will convene at City Hall to rally for fairer housing.
The East London leg will be led by community housing campaigners from Focus E15 and New Era, who made headlines in October 2014 after young mothers occupied empty social housing in the area.
The march is also backed by tenant associations, trade unions and housing campaigns, London MPs and London Assembly members. Defend Council Housing, South London People’s Assembly, Unite Housing Workers and the Trade Unionist a Socialist Coalition (TUSC) have been actively building for the demo.
