More from Canada, as it emerges people who can’t afford April’s or May’s rent thanks to COVID-19 crisis unemployment are being asked to hang a white sheet outside their homes to demand a rent strike.

The protest movement, which started in Montreal last week and has already spread across Canada and the US, demands governments pause housing payments while the pandemic ravages people’s ability to earn income.

“We want landlords and tenants to come together in asking the government for cancellation of rent payments and cancellation of mortgage payments, including interest, for the duration of the health emergency,” said Sunny Doyle, one of the organisers of White Sheets For the Rent Strike.

“We can’t be putting people in individualised fights with their landlords, where the power relations aren’t equal.”

Doyle said her landlady hung a huge white sheet off the side of the triplex they share. She said even those who can afford their rent are invited to hang a sheet in support.
