Protest for affordable housing - join the Austerity Games
Claire Laker-Mansfield, Youth Fight for Jobs, said: "Cameron's latest comments on housing benefit for under 25s represent a cruel and vicious attack on young people. In particular, this will hit the most vulnerable.
"His crass comments, condemning young people who attempt to live as independent adults rather than with their parents throughout their early 20s, stink of an out of touch prime minister unable to understand the lives of those not lucky enough to have his own hyper-privileged background."
Youth Fight for Jobs will highlight the issue of unaffordable housing for young people in the 'property high jump' at the Austerity Games:
