Campaigning to fight the cost of living crisis

Enough is Enough UK is a British grassroots movement with hundreds of thousands of campaigners to combat the cost of living crisis.

Enough is Enough was founded by trade unions and community organisations determined to push back against the misery forced on millions by rising bills, low wages, food poverty, shoddy housing – and a society run only for a wealthy elite.

Five demands

Enough is Enough is building a campaign to win these five demands:

1. A real pay rise

A £15 an hour minimum wage, a real public sector pay rise, and an inflation busting-rise in pensions and benefits.

2. Slash energy bills

Cancel the October price hike and return to the significantly lower pre-April energy price cap.

3. End food poverty

Enshrine the Right to Food in law and put this into practice by introducing universal free school meals, community kitchens, and reinstating the £20-a-week Universal Credit uplift.

4. Decent homes for all

Cap rents, build 100,000+ council homes a year, insulate homes and introduce a charter for renters’ rights.

Limit the number of holiday homes in any area, limit AirBnBs and ensure they are taxed properly.

5. Tax the rich

Make the rich pay their fair share by raising taxes on the wealthiest and the profits of big businesses. Crack down on tax avoidance and evasion.

And alongside that, we should be cutting the tax burden on working people, starting by reversing the recent hike to National Insurance.

Plan of action

That starts with holding rallies across Britain, forming community groups, organising picket line solidarity and taking action against the companies and individuals profiting from this crisis.

Enough is Enough can’t rely on the establishment to solve our problems. It’s up to us in every workplace and every community.

So, if you’re struggling to get by and your wages don’t cover the bills, if you’re fed up working harder for less and you’re worried about the future, or if you just can’t stand to see what’s happening to our country – join us.

Enough is Enough. It’s time to turn anger into action. Please email mail@wesayenough.co.uk[1]

50 demonstrations that stretched from Aberdeen to Ramsgate to Cardiff.

Supporting 200,000 on strike – and it’s only the start.

Nurses. Teachers. Firefighters. Lecturers. Civil servants.
