The whole country is dealing with the repercussions of the pandemic, but students are being ignored, time and time again. One way they’re dealing with this is the rent strikes up and down the country. This means students everywhere are withholding rent payments until demands are met. This may sound dangerous, but with the right support – it can really work. Manchester recently got a 30% rent reduction this way. If you’d like to get involved in the rent strikes at your university, then check out the details below. Or if you want to find out more generally, check out the Rent Strikes facebook.
