 NEEDED NOW:

An industrial-scale state house building programme to end the housing crisis for citizens on low incomes 
  •  We’ve solved housing crisis’s  in the past
  • We know how to do it
  • It must be done again

The petition for an industrial-scale state house building programme is here

It is the first stage in a campaign to get the government to meet the housing crisis head on.

The petition can be signed by individuals and organisations.

Please send the link out widely and share on social media. We will begin a second push in late January once the festive season is behind us but we are keen to get it out and around before then.
