At least 12 people have died in the fire at Grenfell Tower. They deserve justice. We demand answers.
Please let us know if you can make it.

Grenfell House- tenants repeatedly warned this tower block was unsafe. They were told to shut up.
Tenants die when landlords don’t listen

Message from Defend Council Housing:
Tenant groups are horrified and scared after the devastating fire at Grenfell Tower in west London last night. The fire has killed and injured many, and is devastating the lives of hundreds.
In sorrow we send our sympathy and offers of practical support. And in anger we demand an end to the murderous disregard and contempt for tenants, by the landlord in Kensington: see Grenfell Action Group warning
Across the country other landlords are ignoring safety warnings from tenants and others – Fire safety report on 4,000 blocks ignored. Government cuts funding for major repairs and maintenance, promotes demolition and describes our homes, estates and communities as ‘brownfield sites’. This is the context of the disastrous failure to act on tenants’ warnings.
Across the country landlords ignore tenants’ warnings, in order to cut costs or avoid works.
We need a full, immediate safety enquiry into Grenfell and every other block. We need full funding for any improvements including sprinkler systems, recommended by fire services. And we need to listen to tenants views on redevelopment and warnings about the risks to homes and lives.

Protests follow terrible fire
Tenants will protest tomorrow, 15 June from 8am outside a Developers’ forum in Berkeley Sq W1J. Kensington and Chelsea council is one of 22 councils paying to attend, along with Lendlease and other developers and companies. Tenants groups are banned from attending.

A housing protest on 24 June to demand action on homes and repeal of the Housing and Planning Act will also demand action on safety: 24 June from 12 noon at Parliament Square SW1P 3AD – see leaflet.
