On Monday (June 4), Manchester Solidarity Federation demonstrated outside the head office 
of Fortis Student Lettings in Altrincham, near Manchester. ---- It was an action in 
solidarity with a group of tenants renting in Chester through this letting agency. Fortis 
had allowed unacceptable delays in carrying out basic maintenance resulting in tenants 
living, for example, with damp and mould, or without hot water for months: 
https://www.facebook.com/pg/ fortishorrorstories/posts/. The tenants are now asking Fortis 
for compensation and the agency keeps ignoring them or to engage in any attempt at 
mediation. ---- After trying unsusscefuly to talk to someone from the Fortis management, 
we went ahead with our picket outside their office. With a banner, a megaphone and 
leaflets, we spread information about the dispute and received lots of supporting messages 
from the public, including plenty of toots by vehicle drivers.

In response, Fortis closed themselves off in their office, stopped receiving people and 
called the police (just to waste police time). However, we stayed outside for a couple of 
hours showing them that they cannot get away with their appalling treatment.

This is just one more case of a letting agency abusing their tenants, but in this case 
some of the tenants have decided to organise and fight back.

Boycott Fortis!
Organise against abuses in housing!
