  • Get Involved! - A guide to Target to Win!

    Thursday, October 08, 2020 at 07:00 PM · 7 rsvps

    Join our co-coordinator, Stefan, on Thursday 8th to explore how BEST to Get Involved as we explore our Target to Win strategy.

    Suitable for all members this training session is a great way to get an overview of each part of our campaign plan.

    Under the awful system of First Past the Post we need to focus our efforts where they matter most to secure Green seats for Hackney.

    We hope that you will feel both inspired and ready to join us in taking action to help get Hackney the Green voice it needs.

    Please RSVP below to see joining instructions.

    Join London Assembly candidate Benali Hamdache for a masterclass in phonebanking!

    Perfect for beginners and super useful for seasoned activists too, we expect to learn lots from Benali's experience. Benali runs regular phonebanking for the London mayoral campaign from head office. In the coming months Hackney Greens will be supporting Siân Berry's campaign for London Mayor and also aiming to secure much needed Green councillors in Hackney!

  • Book Club September 2020

    Wednesday, September 23, 2020 at 07:30 PM · 9 rsvps

    For September we will be holding an extra special addition of the HGP book club where we will be joined by Samir Jeraj, author of The Rent Trap.

     

    Deregulation, revenge evictions, parliamentary corruption and day-to-day instability: these are the realities for the eleven million people currently renting privately in the UK. At the same time, house prices are skyrocketing and the generational promise of home ownership is now an impossible dream for many. This is the rent-trap: an inescapable consequence of market-induced inequality.

    Rosie Walker and Samir Jeraj offer the first critical account of what is really going on in the private rented sector and expose the powers conspiring to oppose regulation. A quarter of British MPs are landlords, rent strike is almost impossible and snap evictions are growing, but in the light of these hurdles The Rent Trap shows how to fight back.

    Drawing on inspiration from movements in the UK, Europe and further afield, The Rent Trap coheres current experiences of those fighting the financial burdens, health risks and vicious behaviour of landlords in an attempt to put an end to the dominant narratives that normalise rent extraction and undermine our fundamental rights.

    With the huge destabilisation of the coronavirus pandemic dispiritingly feeding further into inequality, this book feels more relevant than ever.
