Renters of the world, uniting! ✊πŸ’₯🌈 Energising and moving day on Saturday as the LRU held its first ever all-member assembly and celebrated turning 1 year old! πŸŽ‚πŸŽ‰

Since we launched London-wide last summer, we've grown from 1 branch to 3 (with hopefully more to come soon!), and from a handful of members to well over a thousand πŸ“ˆ

We've won plenty of important victories through collective action - for our members and renters across London!

🚫 Section 21 No-fault evictions: abolished
πŸ›  Urgent repairs to members' homes: completed
πŸ’ͺ Illegal evictions: resisted
πŸ’° Rent stolen by landlords: returned
βš”οΈ Unfair rent increases: fought off
πŸ’Έ Rent controls in London: Mayor committed
🏑 Rehousing of members into better conditions: secured...

The list goes on, and Saturday was a day to celebrate all we've managed to achieved in such a short time, by having each other's backs and trusting the collective power of ordinary renters working together. ✊

Not just that: it was a also chance to educate ourselves about the housing crisis and plan for the future. We collectively agreed some new and improved demands for a transformed housing system, and began planning how our campaigns might look over the next year. Exciting!

To keep winning these victories and building our power, we need to grow. If you're not a member yet (why not?!) then you can join up here - subs are only needed if you can afford it:

What the L-R-U waiting for?? Get involved, join a branch or a working group, and help us unite London's 3 million renters to win homes for people, not profit! πŸ’₯
