Developer Protests – 5th June 2021

PLEASE SEND US YOUR PHOTOS AND VIDEOS ALONG WITH YOUR PROTEST LOCATION!

IT’S PROTEST DAY!

We are looking forward to today’s protest, and want to create more visibility, so we will be uploading images and videos to the website. We would like to have as many images of all the protests around the country today. Please send them to our email info@buildingsafetycrisis.org .

Today is the day! 

Leaseholders and supporters across the country will show developers and the government that we will not be silenced. This is our time to stand up and be heard! 

Let’s show all developers that they have to pay to fix our homes.

Join us today.. Its good weather .. let’s do this!

Protest locations can be found here

PROTEST GUIDANCE

  • Bring your own placard if you like! Feel free to use our logos and resources
  • Email us on info@buildingsafetycrisis.org, Tweet on https://twitter.com/BuildSafeCrisis @BuildSafeCrisis with images, videos and any speeches, and share posts, articles and Tweets online – every share increases our reach
  • Bring friends and family and encourage them to attend other locations
  • The government, developers and freeholders have all turned their backs on us – Let’s make sure they understand we will not be ignored any longer!
