The Kansas City Council voted to pass a tenant bill of rights, giving more protections for renters. The move was backed by Mayor Quinton Lucas. But the law does not protect people with Section 8 vouchers.
Members of the Palm Beach County Tenants Union have barricaded themselves into unit K108 of Stonybrook to block an illegal retaliatory 24-hour eviction. We will not be leaving and will not be allowing anyone to enter until this eviction is overturned and the tenants given a fair hearing in court on their legal rent strike. This is an action we don’t take lightly, but we were left with no choice due to the criminal neglect of HUD, Millennia, the city of Riviera, federal and state reps, the PBC court system, and too many other parties to name. Solidarity, love, and pray for our safety.
