Linda Taaffe, Waltham Forest Socialist Party

Nadia Zaman has to fight once again (see 'Protesters halt Nadia's eviction') - this time to stop her and her three children being relocated to Stoke-on-Trent. Nadia has lived all her life in Walthamstow, east London.

She resisted eviction, and then accepted the council offer of a single room in nearby Leyton for her whole family. Her supporters are submitting a realistic plan on how she can be housed locally - given willingness to listen and with sensible flexibility on both sides.

But these plans could go down the drain now that Mears are involved - the private contractors have a 80 million deal to cleanse the borough of its poorest families, and ship them off to Stoke.

The prospect of being isolated away from family and community fills Nadia with dread - as it would anybody. It is grossly unjust - even cruel and inhuman.

Councillors must stop this crisis for Nadia right now. They should pull into line the council officers pressing ahead with the 'offer' of Stoke or 'out on the streets'. They should respond to Nadia's supporters' proposal.

We are sick of the torrent of sad stories in the media about people in housing difficulties. We need action.

Take the profit motive out of housing provision. Instead, housing should be considered a social service. Build masses of council homes at council rents, not unaffordable tower blocks.

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.
