Kinsey Family Benefit

Update posted by Jason Collins On Feb 23, 2016

The campaign hasn't fared well but we appreciate there are a lot of people in our situation. Fortunately gogetfunding permits campaign extension and we've extended again - to the end of April. In the meantime, check out my latest radio interview concerning the Dorchester Court story, on Drivetime with Eddie Nestor, BBC Radio London, 16th February. We plan to upload it independently soon, but for now I come on at around the 25:15 minute mark at http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p03gy54s#play. Good for another 3 weeks at this URL

Hope you had a good Christmas. Because of our eviction and the hectic activity of looking for a new place to live and then making the move, and then the holidays, it has been very hard to find the time to promote this campaign. And not surprisingly it hasn't done well so far. So we've decided to extend this campaign through January. We hope to develop some new features for it. Happy New Year!

We've extended the funder once again until New Year's Eve. If we have to we may do so again. In the meantime if you haven't seen it, Buzzfeed has published an article by Patrick Smith about Dorchester Court over the past few days titled 'People Keep Getting Evicted From This Housing Estate Because Of Rent Increases'. You can read it at: http://www.buzzfeed.com/patricksmith/people-keep-g...

Sorry this is happening to you. I heard there's a lawyer called Giles Peaker who specialises in housing law and fights on behalf of tenants. He's been in the papers from time to time about it. If you Google Giles Peaker lawyer, you might be able to track him down. Sorry if this is useless advice months out of date and you've already got a legal team sorted. I found out about your cause through Generation Rent. They are very much on your side. If you could hack it, why not ring Channel Four and ask them to make a documentary about this? Generation Rent might be able to help find production companies who make documentaries for Channel Four who might want to make one. And if, God forbid, you are evicted, have it filmed and YouTubed so the world can see what the effects of the current, inane property mania really are, and how the greedy, unfair dimwits behind it are wrecking society. Again, sorry if this is useless advice very wide of the mark. (I've been in homelessness situations and know how clueless advice really grates.) Best of luck. Morally you have won game set and match. Everyone is on your side.

You've been shamefully treated, and legal costs as well are the last straw. Good luck.
