VIDEO: Protest Against Scrapping of Housing Benefits for 18-21 year olds

As part of David Cameron and George Osborne’s Budget announcement in 2015, plans were made to strip those aged 18-21 of the ability to claim housing benefit, which were set to come into force in April 2017. They were put on hold after the fierce opposition received from all sides, but have crept back into the radar under Theresa May. 

On April 1st, there was a large protest in Westminster in order to show the government that the plans needed to be stopped, or rethought at the least. Here is an exclusive video from organiser, Pete Roberts from the protest:
