Homebuyers’ Pressure Group Protest – 10am on 10/3/2010

By chance I stumbled across a notice on the HBPG website:

“The first protest will take place on Wednesday the 10th March, starting from Gonyeli Roundabout at 0900 and driving in convoy to Parliament.

At the request of buyers a meeting was held with the Construction Association to discuss buyers supporting them at their planned protests against the government’s lack of fulfilling promises to regulate the industry. They agreed that, as our ultimate objectives are similar, they would be delighted if we joined and supported them.

The first protest is planned for Wednesday the 3rd March at 1000 outside Parliament in Lefkoşa. Full details will not be available until Monday evening but they plan to meet in Girne, Gazimagusa and Lefkoşa and drive in convoy to Parliament and arrive at 1000.

If you are fed up with the government’s broken promises and the lack of regulations within the construction industry please give some time to support this worthy cause. You can either join the convoy at one of the meeting places or make your own way to the Parliament building in Lefkoşa.

I read the article referred to and discovered that HBPG was supporting a threat by the Construction Contractors’ Union to stop issuing title deeds to homebuyers unless the government cuts the Union members’ costs. Confused, well I was? I thought the HBPG was fighting to stop builders from using title deeds to blackmail people.

Apparently HBPG are there to force the government to introduce regulations to do with inspecting building works. This seems a bit late as the recent storms should have made it very clear to the government that building standards are atrocious.

I wonder if many people will turn up? Those with a time machine might like to turn up last Wednesday.
