Announcing the details of 30 #BedroomTax Protests. Please Share.

At 1 pm on 16 March, people opposed to the #BedroomTax will be gathering in city centres in more than 30 locations throughout the UK to protest against the policy. You can join us by following the links to any one of the #BedroomTax protests below. Note that 3 of the protests below (in blue) will be taking place on the 30 March.  Foster parents, disabled persons, single parents and families with a recently bereaved member are the groups of people whom this policy hurts the most. The #BedroomTax should not apply to these groups of people and we are calling on the government to delay the policy by at least 1 year while they rethink a way to make the policy much fairer. We think the policy should be wholly scrapped as social renters make five times better use of their space than owner occupiers, and it is unfair to tax bedrooms when 700,000+ houses lie empty. 

Below is a list of 25 of the demonstrations taking place throughout the UK. There will be at least 10 more additional protests taking place including Blackpool, Cambridge, Lincoln, Southampton, and elsewhere. I will add the other locations to this list after the details are finalised. If you wish to attend a protest, you can add your name to the attendance list by clicking on any of the locations below.
