Waltham Forest: Rally for rent control
Waltham Forest TUSC supporters and prospective candidates held our first Rally for Rent Control at a busy crossroads in the East London borough.
We chanted, handed out leaflets and held signs for passing cars to see. We received loads of support, beeps, people crossing the road to take leaflets and cheering in agreement.
TUSC candidates are standing on a promise to lead a campaign to introduce rent control in the borough to bring private sector rents in line with social housing rents, as well as a number of other measures to make sure everyone can afford a decent place to live.
