According to recent figures, over 1,000 residential buildings in London have been identified as fire safety risks. Whilst the Mayor and the London Assembly have been vocal about wanting to fix the problem, words alone will not save leaseholders from the fear of living in dangerous buildings, the threat of ruinous bills and the severe mental health impacts this scandal is having.
Join us for a peaceful protest outside of City Hall, in conjunction with Action for Fire Safety Justice’s the national day of action.
Leaseholders are being forced to pay for the incompetence of both developers, for failing to comply with building regulations, and the Government, for failing to regulate the industry over many decades.
Some leaseholders are facing bills of over £100,000 and many are now considering bankruptcy.
We call for the those in charge to do more to challenge developers and Housing Associations to fix the mess they have created and save hundreds of thousands of people from life changing situation we now find ourselves in.
We need the help of those in power, on all sides of the political spectrum, and we need it now.
Are you planning on organising your own protest? Please do! It is vitally important to keep up the noise. If you do, please let coordinators Chloe or Joanna know at firstname.lastname@example.org.
