Tenants faced with a massive 40% rent hike by their housing association, One Housing, met on 24 April to pledge to fight it. The majority of the tenants, who live in West Ham, east London, are still paying the old rent via standing order and are campaigning for all tenants to do the same.

They have created the One Housing Tenants Action Group to collectively take on One Housing with support from the National Union of Teachers, the Socialist Party, local councillors and other activists. The tenants are confident and determined.

At the meeting they heard from a Butterfields tenant who, with others, successfully fought eviction in 2016. The tenants are planning to march on One Housing's office on 6 May to say 'can't pay, will stay!'
