Can’t Pay – Won’t Leave – No Evictions
The bedroom tax is a vicious attack on some of the poorest and most vulnerable people in society. Stephanie Bottrill killed herself as a result of the stress the bedroom tax put on her.
Social tenants who receive housing benefit have their benefit cut by 14% for one “unoccupied” bedroom and 25% for two or more.
Birmingham City Council only has 368 available one and two bed properties for 14,000 tenants forced to move or pay more.
The council must refuse to evict tenants who fall into arrears as a result of the bedroom tax.
The Birmingham Benefit Justice Campaign 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.
