Brick Lane Debates presents: Could a rent strike fuck the system?
Property developers are making a killing from our city. Millions of people struggle with extortionate rents set by multimillionaire landlords. But why should we be exploited for our basic need for shelter?
A participatory discussion on the history of the rent strike via industrial struggles & the possibility of rent strikes under neoliberal capitalism.
We’ll also talk about developing tools and confidence for strike action – from new technologies to community solidarity.
Discussion led by members of the Radical Housing Network.
