Times are hard – a pandemic and prospect of a no deal Brexit means jobs have been lost, income has been hit and, sadly as ever, often to the most vulnerable in society. ACORN Bristol, the community union, has been involved in a range of campaigns locally to help people. Now they need our help to help others. They are trying to crowdfund 3K (and are 2K in!) to fight any winter COVID evictions;
So far during this pandemic the government has failed to provide any meaningful support for renters, refused to legislate to prevent an upcoming tidal wave of evictions, and most recently voted to let some of the poorest kids in our communities go hungry. We’re all angry and we’re all fed up; but we know where the power truly lies – with us and those in our community who are ready to stand up and fight back!
If we train enough people to resist evictions, no-one has to lose their home. But all this takes money. Will you help us raise £3k by the end of the year so that we can guard against the evictions tsunami in January?
