Action meeting 'Refuse the Rent Increase' The Hague | Wednesday May 29, 7:30 PM

Since 1993, rents have increased by 141%! This year, the Hague corporations will add another 5.3%! While our wages have been moderated, rent has become unaffordable after years of cuts, mismanagement and market forces. A quarter of tenants cannot make ends meet financially after paying the rent! To tackle the housing crisis, the government must structurally invest in public housing instead of unilaterally passing the bill on to tenants.

That's why we got together in March SP The Hague, BPW The Hague and the Hague City Party in action against the upcoming rent increase during the action day 'Freeze the rent'. Despite a widely supported protest, dozens gathered cries for help from tenants and many media attention, the corporations have decided to put further pressure on the livelihoods of their tenants by continuing with the highest rent increase in 30 years. Time for action! Join us and refuse the rent increase!

Take action!

Action group 'We Refuse the Rent Increase' is fighting for social security and a multi-year rent freeze. We do this by massively refusing the annual rent increase as of July 1 based on a simple step-by-step plan. How? Come to the action meeting on Wednesday, May 29, from 7:30 PM at the residents' organization The Old Center, Paviljoensgracht 56, The Hague.

Action meeting

During the action meeting we will discuss the practical implementation of the step-by-step plan and refusal, how you can become active in our solidarity network and what else you can do to enforce a collective rent freeze. There is also room to ask questions about the campaign and there is enough printed matter available to collect for free and distribute locally in your area.
