Bedroom Tax Meeting in Ladywood Tomorrow (Wednesday 1st May)

bbj bedroom tax logoFollowing on from their demonstration last weekend, Birmingham Benefit Justice Campaign will be holding a meeting in Ladywood to discuss the impact of the Bedroom Tax and taking action against it.

Wednesday 1st May
7pm – 8pm

Axe the Bedroom Tax – Open Meeting
Ladywood Community Centre
St Vincent St West

This government is attacking disabled people, low paid workers and unemployed people. Ladywood has one of the highest numbers of people affected by the Bedroom Tax in Birmingham. This tax will mean people have to decide whether to try and pay and go without food: to try and move – but there are only 350 one and two bed flats available for the 13,000 people affected: or refuse to pay and risk eviction.

Get involved:
Benefit Justice is uniting all those opposed to the devastating benefit cuts. By linking up we can challenge the government’s divide and rule tactics, and unite the millions of people hit by these cuts across the country. Mass resistance beat the Poll Tax and Thatcher: we can do the same to the Bedroom tax and Cameron.

• No evictions by Birmingham Council
• Re-designate all ‘spare rooms’ as study rooms
• Cut rents not benefits
• The bankers and their rich friends caused the crisis – make them pay

    Was not aware that this meeting was going to be in the evening.  I live far from Ladywood and would wish to know when there is a day time meeting which I could attend hopefully although I have sent a Discretionary Form to the Council to see if I could get financial help from them for a period of say 13 weeks and within that time my daughter should be out of prison and occupying the room.
