Housing Here and Now Endorses Real Rent Reform's Oct. 1 Rally

Housing Here and Now is proud to announce our support and endorsement of Real Rent Reform Campaign. We encourage our membership and allies to turn out for the October 1 city-wide rally against the rent hikes of the Rent Guidelines Board, in demanding affordable housing and the slowing of New York City's housing crisis.

Real Rent Reform and Housing Here and Now have fought together for very similar platforms, both committed to overturning vacancy decontrol, keeping apartments formerly under Mitchell-Lama and Project-Based Section 8 in the rent stabilization system, and pushing a comprehensive strategy of defending affordable housing for all New Yorkers. We have been allies in each other's work, and are together building a strong, unified housing justice movement.

Upcoming fall events for Housing Here and Now members, tenants and affordable housing advocates:

October 1: Real Rent Reform City-wide Rally, 5:30 PM, Harlem State Office Bldg Plaza, 163 West. 125th St., east of Adam Clayton Powell, Jr. Blvd.

November 19: Housing Here and Now City-Wide Rally to Overturn Vacancy Decontrol, Location and time to be announced.

Protest now before the elections to show the candidates we mean business, and after to demand they follow through!

Please support Real Rent Reform as an ally and fighter for affordable housing. To join us in endorsing the campaign, or to find out more, contact Real Rent Reform at 212-979-6238, ext. 204 or join@realrentreform.org.

Recently an insurance company nearly wind up....

A bank is nearly bankrupt......

How it affect you? Did you buy insurance? Did you buy mini note or bonds?

Who fault?

They only talk about how bad the crisis will be, but they did not give regulation measures…..

Although not approved initially when thinking of using tax payer money, $700B is used to save finance industry only, how about the industry that you are in.....retail industry, construction industry, manufacturing industry, R&D, electronics, electrical, mechanical, chemical, IT etc.... each industry will be able to enjoy at least $10B.......Which will make every industry vibrant…..

They say without using tax payer money, they will not be able to lend to small companies…..

Bank primary role is to lend money….else what sort of business will let them earn….?

Many companies had been merged and consolidated, and they are stronger now, so don’t bail out, they will consolidated…..

Many ways of raising their own funds eg preference shares, sovereignty fund etc.


The top management of the Public listed company ( belong to "public" ) salary should be tied a portion of it to the shares price ( IPO or ave 5 years ).... so when the shares price drop, it don't just penalise the investors, but those who don't take care of the company.....If this rule is pass on, without any need of further regulation, all industries ( as long as it is public listed ) will be self regulated......

We must push for it for our next generations......


Sign a petition to your favourite president candidate, congress member again and ask for their views to comment on this, and what regulations they are going to raise for implementation.....If you agree on my point, please share with many people as possible....

Media and finance sector are the only two sectors ( hopefully Hacker can also ) which can overcome political incorrect power, so it is time to fine tune to the correct path, so hopefully media can united to report the truth...... ( because after this incident, they will still required media in future )
