Clinton Hill Bldgs Hit- Pickets March Again (Newark Sunday News Aug 23, 1964)

Article from the Newark Sunday News covering a rent strike demonstration organized by the Clinton Hill Neighborhood Council and Newark Community Union Project (NCUP) at Clinton and Badger Avenues. The demonstrations were organized to support a rent strike by tenants to protest “rats, roaches, and ridiculous rents.” A rent strike was a tactic used by tenants to force a landlord to make repairs to a housing unit by witholding rent payment until repairs were made. — Credit: Newark Public Library
