The first Positive Action pamphlet available tommorow

At tommorow's event it will be possible to pick up one of our free positive action pamphlets, we will be printing one for every event so keep your eyes peeled.
Heres what to look out for...


Tommorow our first benefit is for the UK homeless charity shelter, in the future we aim to support more local charitys, but despite the size of the charity it is still quite underexposed and above all it puts itself to the aid of the countrys most needy. All in all every bit of exposure and aid this charity recieves makes a difference.

In London despite the fact many try to ignore it, homelessness is still one of the most visible problems London faces. In one of the richest countries in the world where many families own two cars and whilst the majority of Britain’s bourgeoisie property obsessed own two cars and two houses own two houses this kind of problem is unacceptable at this level.

The problem should not be ignored. The charities should be commended and supported on their mission to help the homeless. And push the government to put more resources into providing shelter for these people.

Heres a little bit about shelter taken from their website:
Shelter was founded in England in 1966 by the Reverend Bruce Kenrick, who was horrified by the state of the tenements round his Notting Hill parish. The setting up of the organisation in Scotland followed in 1968.

Since Shelter's foundation, our country has undergone a long period of affluence and economic growth - but complacency allowed housing to slip down the public and political agendas.

More than four decades of constant lobbying have pressured our government into making some key changes to policy and legislation, and Shelter has celebrated some landmark achievements in recent years.

In 2008, there is a seemingly unbridgeable gulf between the housing haves and have-nots. Housing is now the key factor determining a person's health, wellbeing, and prospects in life.
If you can't afford to buy, and can't get a council house, renting privately may be your only option. But this is often unaffordable to people on low incomes.
The slums of the 1960s are gone, but the housing crisis still exists. Shelter has achieved great things in its history, but our work won't stop until everyone in Britain can access a decent, affordable home.
