Housing campaigners called on thousands of people in Leeds today to fight back against the government's vicious assault on council tenants.
The controversial bedroom tax would force many tenants to move to a smaller house or flat - if they can find one - or pay the financial penalty. Private tenants will not be affected.
Campaigning group Leeds Hands Off Our Homes estimated that 8,500 tenants in Leeds are affected by the "bedroom tax."
The group, which has links with London-based Defend Council Housing group and is backed by Leeds Trades Union Council, delivered 15,000 leaflets and posters to Leeds Council tenants and meetings are being organised across the city.
