Social Housing is being flogged off, and SHAC is calling all supporters to join protests outside the auction houses on 14th and 19th February.
Some familiar housing association names are listed by the auction houses as owners of the social housing properties, including Peabody, Family Mosaic, Wandle, Hexagon, Wrekin and Single Homeless Project.
SHAC and members of the Unite Housing Workers Branch will be joining HARA and GMB members to picket the auctions, as follows:
Thursday 14 February
Intercontinental London Park Lane, One Hamilton Place, London W1J 7QY
Tuesday 19th February
Marriott Hotel, Grosvenor Square, London W1K 6JP
As the Chartered Institute of Housing has reported, more than 165,000 homes for social rent were lost in just six years between 2012 and 2018. This auction will contribute to this loss, and will only worsen the housing crisis.
Join SHAC to help us fight for housing justice.
