Radical Housing Network Conference
Direct Action in a time of crisis: where now for the grassroots housing movement?
Saturday 14th November, 10am – 6pm
The Radical Housing Network brings together over 30 grassroots housing groups from around London, fighting against gentrification and social cleansing; fighting for decent homes for all.
Groups within the Network have been at the forefront of the explosive housing movement over the past 3 years. From the community-led occupations of Carpenters Estate, Sweets Way and Guinness Trust, to the daily struggles to stop evictions across the city, the energy to fight for housing justice keeps building.
After 3 years of direct action and community organising, we want to explore where we’re at, and where we go from here. This event will be highly participatory, with plenty of time for group discussion.
All Saints Community Centre, 105 New Cross Road, SE14 5DJ
The Radical Housing Network is made up of groups fighting for housing justice, based in London.
Housing: Groups within our network work on a wide range of housing issues, including but not limited to, private renting, social housing, squatting, access to benefits, homelessness, and co-operative housing.
Radical: We feel we are not represented by mainstream politics, and seek to organise a movement for housing justice from below, across tenure, rooted in people’s everyday housing needs. We support a diversity of tactics, including direct action.
Network: The network is a horizontal association; a “group of groups”. We connect and cooperate with each other, across tenure, within and beyond our local neighbourhoods.
