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.
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
