Manchester Unites for Rent Freedom Day

If you rent from a private landlord, you’re probably under pressure. You spend on average two days wages every week on rent, you have a one in three chance of living in squalor and you have very little protection if the landlord wants their property back. 

The good news is you’re in good company. There are now ten million private renters in Britain and for the first time we have enough votes to decide the next election. Politicians can no longer ignore us.

That’s why on Wednesday 4th February, Generation Rent is hosting Rent Freedom Day. A day for ordinary private renters and their allies to hammer home the message to Westminster – that we are angry, organised and ready to evict any MP who doesn’t tackle the serious issues facing private renters today.

Over the course of the day, you can:

  • Lobby your MP
  • Hear the main political parties debate the housing crisis
  • Learn how to organise your own local renters group
  • Enjoy some stand-up comedy
  • Find out your rights as a renter
  • Register to vote
  • Develop policies that will improve the lives of renters

Together we can make Rent Freedom Day the day that private renting changes forever. To book your place (travelling from Manchester or the Northwest) or for more information email:
