Combat the Bedroom Tax in Liverpool - Saturday 30th March

On Saturday 30th of March, Liverpool grassroots anti-bedroom tax campaigns will take to the streets of Liverpool to combat an all out attack on working class people.

We have seen that Government, whatever suit it wears, does not support working class unity and it is up to us to work together and smash this bedroom tax outright.

We are not just faced with the attack on working class people disguised as the bedroom tax: the benefit cap, personal independence payment, council tax support cut, the benefit up-rating bill will all decimate the working class.

The bedroom tax is pushing people to the edge, and there are far more cuts to hit people who are both in and out of work.

The Labour Party have used the anger of the working class for political gain. They cannot be trusted. They've even said they will continue the bedroom tax and workfare.

It is up to us, our friends, our neighbours, our communities to stand together in working class unity, without politicians or councillors, and combat this attack on working class people, on what it means to have a home and to be a human being.

Tenants have reached the point now were they are swerving the disempowering and ‘traditional’ methods of protest --And we don’t need parliament stooges calling us to action. We’ll do that ourselves.

The following groups will be taking action on the 30th of March. These are tenant-led community groups organising for themselves:

Dingle: (with Canning): 7:30pm, 19th March, Tuesday, The Florrie, Mill St.

Croxteth: 7pm, Tuesday 19th March, Croxteth Sports Centre, Altcross Rd.

Garston: 7pm, Wednesday 20th March, Methodist Church Hall, Banks Road.

Clubmoor/Norris Green: 7pm, Thursday 21st March, Broadway Pub, Newhall Lane.

Granby: 7:30pm, Thursday 21st March, The Greenhouse, Tiber Street.

Kirby: 7pm, Tuesday 19th March, Sacred Heart Club, Briery Hey Ave.

Wallasey: 7:30pm, Wednesday 27th March, Park View Social Club, Liscard Rd

There are also several other groups in Merseyside, including 2 in the Wirral and the large Stand Up in Bootle campaign.

Lets combat the bedroom tax and the rest of the attacks on our welfare on the 30th of March.

Community resistance, without politicians, is the only way to combat the bedroom tax.
