This talk will look at how housing movements and tenant struggles have shaped, and been shaped by, Glasgow’s ever changing housing stock. Tenements, high rises and new builds have all called forth different tactics, strategies and demands as the city transformed, and we will trace a tradition of rent strikes, occupations and protest that continues up to today.
