Campaign launch: we won't let Mears evict our neighbours!

On Saturday the Glasgow Living Rent members will be launching our campaign to stop Mears evicting our neighbours.

At the campaign launch we will be issuing a warning to Mears to let them know we are watching them! We will not let our neighbours be evicted without onward housing.

The Home Office is fast tracking asylum claims to clear their backlog. While this is welcome news, there has been no thought given to how these proposals will impact those who have been granted refugee status’ access to housing.

After successful applications, Mears is forcing some people out of their homes in seven days. That’s not enough time to find a home, a job or apply for benefits.

We know how stretched the housing in this city is, we know how difficult it is to get into temporary accommodation. With a lack of public services able to receive them, Mears’ actions will push many of the 1,400 people onto the streets. 

Read and share Living Rent’s full statement here.

When: 9:30 - 10:30am Saturday 25th November

Where: meet at Cessnock Subway Station

Bring: Placards, friends, weather appropriate clothing and chants!

After the action anyone who wishes to can then travel together to join the Living Rent Block at the STUC Anti-Racism and Anti-Fascism March. Members will be assembling at Glasgow Green at 11am and marching to Strathclyde Technology and Innovation Centre where there will be a rally and Living Rent speaker.
