Reading Socialist Party

There was a successful launch of our new Reading and East Berkshire housing campaign in Windsor on 15 May. The meeting was attended by 40 people, with speakers and lively discussion from the floor.

We kicked off our anti-housing crisis petition at the meeting and discussed the best way forward for our campaign. Although the meeting was held in Windsor our campaign covers Windsor, Reading, Slough, Bracknell, Ascot and other local areas.

Housing and homelessness are massive issues for many people in our area – highlighted by the attacks on homeless people because of the Royal wedding – mainly as a result of Tory austerity, low pay, lack of council housing and unaffordable private housing for many people young and old.

We call for support for our campaign from people in this area, let us fight the housing crisis and offer a better future to all those in housing need.
