Housing Crisis

Event Details

The July Edinburgh RIC assembly will be looking at the housing crisis. Our speakers are Maddie Lou Barink from Living Rent and Deidre Henderson from Place Edinburgh.

Living Rent is a democratic organisation run by and for tenants. It wants homes for people, not for profit; to redress the power imbalance between landlords and tenants; and ensure that everyone has decent and affordable housing. It believes in the collective power of tenants to come together to fight for their rights, and use diverse tactics – including direct action when necessary – to achieve this. It is not affiliated to any political party, but recognises the imbalance of influencing parties and politicians and holding them to account.

Place Edinburgh is a grassroots group finding the balance between short-term lets and protecting liveable, affordable communities in Edinburgh.
