Inspired by the Focus E15 mum’s occupation and Our Hendon’s regular blockades of Barratts to prevent the destruction of their homes? Want to get involved in local and London-wide housing action? Come along to this Friday’s London Coalition Against Poverty general meeting. London Coalition Against Poverty is made up of local groups which meet regularly to provide support and take action together on issues faced and raised by their members – from helping each other make bedroom tax appeals, visiting the housing office on mass to take on the gate keeping of the homelessness application process, and the odd occupation of council homes facing sell-off.
Every 2-3 months, groups that are members of LCAP, of which HASL is one, meet up together to share what they have been up to in their local boroughs, exchange advice and tactics, and plan actions and other events such as training sessions. Whether there’s an LCAP group in your area that you’d like to meet, or you’re interested in starting a group, come along this Friday to meet people and get involved! The meeting will start at 1.30pm at Casa Latina (groundfloor room), 10 Kingsgate Place (off Kilburn High Road), Kilburn, NW6 4TA
