and well attended demonstration against the so-called bedroom tax was held at the Guildhall on Easter Saturday. There were a number of speakers who eloquently outlined how the tax would affect them, and it was made clear that this was one in a swathe of political attacks by government on the poor, vulnerable, sick and disabled.
There will be another protest soon – DCH will
publish the date when it is agreed. DCH also has a very useful list of arguments against the bedroom tax on its site, which points out that already some councils and Housing Associations are taking measures to protect tenants.
