Justice for Grenfell
This petition had 288 supporters
In the early hours of Wednesday 14th June residents of Grenfell Tower in London's richest borough Kennsington and Chelsea, were met with an inferno which engulfed the entire building in approximately 20 minutes leaving many homeless and hundreds feared dead due to a lack of safety measures put in place despite residents campaigning for many years. These events could have happened to anyone living in a social housing tower block the demands below are so that necessary measures take place to ensure this never happens to anyone again.
Theresa May responded to the incident and started government intentions to fund everyday items for survivors. However we already know that the public came to the rescue prior to the 3 day delayed response. Together we have donated and rose so much that further donations have been rejected. Some are still yet to receive this funding.
Please sign this petition so we can demand the following
1) All survivors to be compensated for loss, injuries and emotional trauma.
2) Parliament to ban similar cladding from being used anywhere in the UK and call for any existing cladding to be removed nationwide. There have been historical reports linking cladding to building fires.
'In the UK there are no regulations requiring the use of fire-retardant material in cladding used on the exterior of tower blocks and schools'
3) Minister of Housing and Planning to devise stronger fire regulations for councils and landlords and ensures similar events do not repeated themselves by installing sprinklers in all social housing blocks and provide multiple escape routes. They are currently no strict laws regulating health and safety for social housing residence.
Grenfell residents have not suffered in vain, CHANGE MUST COME !
