Protest: House Grenfell Residents NOW!

 

It has been six months since the atrocity of the Grenfell Tower fire and to date there are over 100 families who have still living in hotels. Entire families are sleeping in one bed, whilst children are expected to complete homework on the very space that they sleep. Theresa May said the residents would be rehoused in 3 weeks!

In a borough where there are 1652 empty homes, it is a disgrace that the council has not been able to devise a strategy that has enabled the residents of Grenfell Tower to be rehoused more quickly. This has compounded the trauma that the survivors of the fire have been through.

J4G believes that this is a continuation of the council’s disdainful attitude to its social housing residents and a perpetuation of the discriminatory housing policies which have left thousands in temporary accommodation outside of the borough.

Joe D said, “The council keep saying they can’t rehouse us quickly because there’s a shortage of social housing. Well, whose fault is that”

We will not wait in silence for the council to implement their flawed rehousing policy. Six months in hotels is too long!

We demand justice for Grenfell.

RBKC, act now and house the residents in safe and decent homes.
