Justice for Grenfell
Join the protest March for Homes Saturday 24 June 2017 12 noon Parliament Square SW1P 3AD
The terrible Grenfell fire shows the murderous result of housing policies dictated by profit and greed. Tenants die because landlords don’t listen. Everyone needs a home they can afford. Government continues to destroy council housing. Street homeless and insecurity is soaring, and millions are trapped in expensive, insecure private renting. People pay over half their income in rent – while landlords and developers get tax breaks and subsidies. Opposition in and outside Parliament stalled much of the Housing and Planning Act 2016, including Pay to Stay and sell off of council homes on the open market. But the Act is law, and is still a threat. A united housing movement needs to challenge the weak Government, take direct action and force the changes we need.
