    Britons hold demos to protest bedroom tax


    by PressTV

    Britons are holding rallies across the country to protest the so-called bedroom tax which they say is targeting the poor.

    People are out on the streets of Leeds, Cardiff, Manchester, Nottingham and London as part of a national day of action. They're calling on the government to stop the implementation of the bedroom tax which cuts housing support to the poorest households. In London, demonstrators have gathered outside the most expensive property at Hyde Park. The protesters said there are enough homes in the city but many buildings remain empty. The legislation which came into effect a year ago has been unpopular because millions are already struggling with poverty.
