D.C. Resists tomorrow May 2nd, 12-2pm
There will be a community protest in Herne Hill at Dorchester Court tomorrow May 2nd, from 12-2. D.C. Resists (a private renters campaign group) has been set up to highlight D.C.'s landlord/freeholder Manaquel and to fight for a fair deal for tenants. The campaign group says Manaquel has allowed the building to fall into disrepair while pushing in rent hikes for tenants (by as much as 60% in a single year) which when questioned, results in eviction being pushed in once assured shorthold tenancy contract expires. Campaigners will have banners and there will be press photo opportunities. Dorchester Court, Herne Hill SE24 9QX. If interested in joining the group's protest, Dorchester Group fronts onto Herne Hill, between Poplar Walk and Rollscourt Avenue.
