Product Information

"In 1915, during World War 1, one of the largest rent strikes in urban history broke out in parts of Glasgow, in response to steep rent rises imposed by private landlords. 20,000 joined the refusal to pay rent, organising a grassroots movement that physically resisted evictions and contested passing them in courts, and forcing the British government to passing legislation to control rent levels. The Glasgow Rent Strike was a significant factor in the development of subsidised public housing; could this inspirational movement hold lessons for us, at a time when social housing is being dismantled and private rents are soaring?"

Part of the Past Tense WW1 series, 2014.
