Dinnae step on Dennistoun!
We, members of in the East End of Glasgow, covering the G31 postcode, founded the Dennistoun branch in November 2020 to defend Dennistoun from sky-rocketing rents, uncleaned streets and closes and dodgy landlords in the social and private rented sector. In December 2020, we campaigned to re-instate close cleaning and won cleaning schedules in Wellpark. In January and February 2021 we campaigned to demand GHA freeze rents.
The branch officially launched in June 2021, and we've fought on issues of disrepair and eviction and won thousands of pounds in compensation in the private rented sector and overturned evictions in the social rented sector. We are now campaigning to reopen Wellpark Community Hall, and through relentless doorknocking and regular community action, the pressure on Wheatley Homes (owners of the hall) is paying.
It's always a good time to join local members in fighting for better conditions in the neighbourhood, so join our growing branch today!
