Justice For Tenants - Fighting for working class people in Liverpool!

02-05-2004 13:48

A tenants' direct action campaign group!

The tenants in Liverpool and Merseyside are sick of the injustices. The councillors whether they're Labour or Liberal-Democrat simply don't care about throwing us out into the private sector they're not tenants themselves!
