The Communist Party Housing Commission has produced this campaigning six-point charter for housing activists, tenants, housing and building workers.
HOUSING GREED VS HOUSING NEED
A decent, affordable home is a basic human right; If your rent costs more than a third of your household income it is unaffordable.
Freeze rents, regulate private landlords, stop no-fault evictions
Start a mass council housing development and improvement programme, stop the sale of public land to private developers
Bring back Council homes transferred to housing associations and arms-length companies and put them under democratic control
Restore council construction, design and development jobs
Build a truly independent tenant’s movement linked to the trades’ unions and local communities all of which should be involved in developing local plans
End homelessness. Make the provision of suitable accommodation for all homeless people a legal requirement
