Housing for the 99% has disbanded.
Housing for the 99% began in 2012 as a callout to those, especially in London, concerned about the growing housing crisis. One particular focus was those renting from private landlords, from and for whom there was little campaigning or activism at the time.
Since there, many new groups have formed around aspects of the housing crisis, and existing groups have begun working more closely together. There are now 9 private tenants groups in London, working together through the London Renters coalition. And the Radical Housing Network has been set up to facilitate sharing of support, ideas and resources between different housing groups more widely.
Those who initial made links around this callout are organising through the Radical Housing Network and/or London Renters and so there’s no longer the same role for Housing for the 99% to serve as a platform or forum for organising or sharing information.
But there’s still plenty to be done to tackle the housing crisis, which continues to worsen. You can get involved with either of these networks:
