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.
