We are a volunteer network of people who support each other and organise to deal with specific housing, job and other problems caused by the greed of the the rich and powerful.

We recognise that housing and employment law protects landlords and bosses more often than tenants and workers, and we take direct action to protect ourselves and to build solidarity.

A wee little update on the Glasgow Solidarity Network

As ardent readers of this blog know, Glasgow Solidarity Network had a busy start to 2014. We won a case against a Glasgow letting agency that ripped tenants of by charging illegal “administration fees”. The agency had to pay back just under 190 quid. Following this successful campaign GSN received quite a few calls and emails from people with similar problems.

Big Meet-up, Big Thanks

Just a quick thanks to everyone who turned up to our Big Meet-up tonight. It was a really upbeat meeting and it seemed to mark a positive step for the network, both in terms of getting to know other groups in the city and in terms of hearing new ideas about how we can improve in future fights.
