YFJE condemns proposal to stop housing benefit for under 25s
Youth Fight for Jobs and Education plans a fortnight of protest against Tory cuts from 13th October 2012.
Suzanne Beishon, organiser of housing campaign Young Londoners Forced Out said: "This is an absolute farce.
"At the same time as they're telling us to get on our bikes and look for work they are forcing many young adults back into living with their parents.
"It's measures like this that run the risk of infantilising a whole generation of young people. People should get out and join the YFJE protests that are being held up and down the country.
"We are also building for the TUC demo on October 20th. Young people should join this protest alongside trade unionists in a huge show of opposition to austerity."
The Youth Fight for Jobs and Education Fortnight of Action will take place from 13th October to 27th October.
They will be holding protests up and down the country against attacks on young people's rights and living standards.
They will be building momentum for the October 20th demonstration and building support for the call for a 24-hour general strike. They are also building support for their manifesto: "A future for the 99%".

Coronavirus crisis - Finance appeal
The coronavirus crisis has laid bare the class character of society in numerous ways. It is making clear to many that it is the working class that keeps society running, not the CEOs of major corporations.
The results of austerity have been graphically demonstrated as public services strain to cope with the crisis.
The government has now ripped up its 'austerity' mantra and turned to policies that not long ago were denounced as socialist. But after the corona crisis, it will try to make the working class pay for it, by trying to claw back what has been given.
- The Socialist Party's material is more vital than ever, so we can continue to report from workers who are fighting for better health and safety measures, against layoffs, for adequate staffing levels, etc.
- Our 'fighting coronavirus workers' charter', outlines a programme to combat the virus and protect workers' living conditions.
- When the health crisis subsides, we must be ready for the stormy events ahead and the need to arm workers' movements with a socialist programme - one which puts the health and needs of humanity before the profits of a few.
Inevitably, during the crisis we have not been able to sell the Socialist and raise funds in the ways we normally would.
We therefore urgently appeal to all our viewers to donate to our special coronavirus appeal.
