(en) France, Union Communiste Libertaire UCL - Collective call, Solidary tenants, we are suspending our rent ! (fr, it, pt)[machine translation]

Date Wed, 6 May 2020 07:14:47 +0300

Many tenants are no longer working and, despite the measures put in place, face a drop or even suppression of their income. Faced with that, a collective action is proposed by this call: to suspend its rent. An appeal supported by the Libertarian Communist Union (UCL). ---- Many tenants no longer work and, despite the measures put in place, face a drop or even a reduction in their income: partial unemployment schemes which do not compensate for the fall in wages, total lack of income for many of the most precarious workers or in the informal sector..., increased risk of economic redundancies, difficulties and delays in accessing technical unemployment or health insurance... ---- Containment also represents an additional financial burden: increased food load (more school or business canteens, restaurant tickets, etc.) of water and electricity ; and will weaken many tenants in the HLM park and the private market.

In Germany, a rental moratorium for a period of 3 months is established for tenants in difficulty, with a payment deadline extending until September 2022. In Lisbon, as well as in Barcelona, the mayors have frozen payment rents in their public housing until June. The payment of home loans is suspended throughout Spain, Swiss tenants can suspend their rent without penalty for 3 months, the Canadian and English governments pay aid to tenants ...

In France, where rents have never been so expensive and are among the highest in Europe, the Government does not act, apart from the postponement of 2 months from the end of the winter truce, evictions and cuts in energy, and the suspension for a few weeks of the eviction procedures for the unpaid state of emergency. He takes the reckless risk of provoking massive eviction procedures and adding to the anxiety generated by the epidemic that of tenants in economic difficulty. The Government does not respond to associations which alert it to the need for a rental moratorium.

This is why we, the signatories, decide to suspend the payment of our rent during the epidemic, in solidarity with tenants in difficulty and for the establishment of a moratorium during the pandemic and its aftermath.

To join and support the call: https://www.loyersuspendu.org

For HLM and private sector tenants who want to join this movement:

first, suspend the automatic direct debit as soon as possible ;
secondly, if the government remains deaf to the plight of tenants in difficulty, by the next deadline, suspend the rent by making sure beforehand not to get in more trouble.
We request that the government:

Declares a rental moratorium for tenants in difficulty
Suspend all sanctions against tenants (bailiff acts, rejection of direct debit, suspension of the lease in the event of a deadline)
Provides a budget up to the needs to clear the debt of tenants and first-time buyers in difficulty
Organizes very quickly a fall in rents, the increase in APL, the stop of evictions, the massive realization of real social housing.
We ask the municipalities, departments and inter-municipal authorities at the head of an HLM organization, and all of the lessors, not to take any penalty with regard to joint tenants and their tenants in difficulty due to the pandemic.
