Armed forces groups, foster families and disability charities are campaigning against the tax
Thousands of angry Brits are threatening a bedroom tax rebellion against David Cameron, the Sunday People has reported.
Forces groups, foster families and disability charities are gathering to fight the Government’s planned changes.
Around 660,000 people will fall victim to crippling cuts to their benefits from April.
The Sunday People has been flooded with letters and calls since launching our campaign to Stop The Bedroom Tax.
Graeme Gair, who faces losing his home, has set up a Facebook page with 11,000 followers.
Mr Gair, 42, said:
“It’s going to price people out of their homes. The Government are going to have to realise this or it’s going to be their downfall.”
At a packed meeting held in Hull – where 5,500 households are being hit – protestors vowed to defeat the tax.
Co-organiser Paul Spooner said:
“This is just the beginning. There is no option but to fight. Because people can’t find the money, they are already facing a choice between food and bills.”
Sam Shade 22, said the tax would leave him with less than £9 a week to live on. He said:
“If people are made aware of the impact it will have on everyone in this country, not just people on benefits, it can be defeated.”
In Leeds, John Davies, 61, has formed the Hands off our Homes pressure group, which calculated 30,000 people in the city will be affected.
Mr Davies said:
“We want to get them together. If they don’t like the bedroom tax they have to do something.”
Protester meetings are planned in Liverpool and Scotland and a march will take place in London on March 30.
