Day of tenants’ action against Santander and rent rises, Saturday 18th February


As part of the move to develop a national tenants’/renters’ union, people in eight cities will be taking action against Santander this Saturday, demanding that the bank drops a clause in its mortgage contracts that requires landlords to “take all steps to ensure… the maximum increase in the rent which can reasonably be achieved”. So far, events are confirmed for Sheffield, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Bristol, Hackney, Reading, Birmingham, and Newcastle.


About nothingiseverlost

"The impulse to fight against work and management is immediately collective. As we fight against the conditions of our own lives, we see that other people are doing the same. To get anywhere we have to fight side by side. We begin to break down the divisions between us and prejudices, hierarchies, and nationalisms begin to be undermined. As we build trust and solidarity, we grow more daring and combative. More becomes possible. We get more organized, more confident, more disruptive and more powerful."
