Shame on Clarion - another exploitative landlord

East London Socialist Party and the Social Housing Action Campaign (Shac) attended a London Renters Union demo outside Clarion Housing in London Bridge on 1 June.

After the death of his mother, a Clarion resident, Daniel, was told that he couldn't succeed her tenancy, even though the tenancy agreement states he could. His property is in complete disrepair, and Clarion will do nothing to improve it.

This case isn't unique to Clarion. Like many so-called 'social' landlords, it leaves its tenants in substandard broken properties that are not fit to live in. They raise rents and service charges without improving the service.

Tenants need to organise and fight against these exploitative landlords. The Socialist Party stands in solidarity with Daniel and all renters and tenants campaigning for their rights.

Finance appeal

The coronavirus crisis has laid bare the class character of society in numerous ways. It is making clear to many that it is the working class that keeps society running, not the CEOs of major corporations.

The results of austerity have been graphically demonstrated as public services strain to cope with the crisis.

Inevitably, during the crisis we have not been able to sell the Socialist and raise funds in the ways we normally would.
We therefore urgently appeal to all our viewers to donate to our Fighting Fund.
