Very pleased to share news of an initiative we set up to use direct action tactics to collectively deal with specific housing, job and other problems caused by the greed of the the rich and powerful.
Last week the Glasgow Solidarity Network undertook a first step in a planned slowly escalating program of direct action against a letting agent who was refusing to refund £250 illegally charged to 3 tenants. The campaign was led by those effected and the rest of us stood with them in solidarity.
While we were prepared to stand by them for as long as it took, victory was achieved in less than a week! While the rich and powerful can successfully bully us alone, collective action allows us to win, limited only by our numbers, solidarity, creativity, determination and hope for a better world.
