Housing for the 99 are planning another meeting for 7pm on Thursday 24 May, again at the Grayston Centre, Charles Square, N1 6HT (nearest tube: Old Street). This is to start fleshing out plans for a campaign, including discussing how to organise and what actions we might take (and maybe come up with a name – ideas welcome!)
