Cladding crisis protests across the country this weekend

End Our Cladding Scandal campaigners have organised a national day of developer protests on 5 June to demand that developers fix unsafe homes.

In the run up to the fourth anniversary of the Grenfell Tower fire where 72 people lost their lives, campaigners say that the government has turned its back on them and that developers will not take responsibility for fire safety defects affecting buildings across the country.

Facing financial ruin and bankruptcy, campaigners say that many leaseholders are suffering from mental health issues and that homelessness is on the rise.

End Our Cladding Scandal is a resident-led campaign and a collaboration between Inside Housing magazine and cladding action groups. The campaign has partnered with national media through the Sunday Times Hidden Housing Scandal and Daily Mail’s Towering Injustice campaigns.

The campaign sets out 10 steps calling on the government fix the cladding and building safety crisis. These steps include the urgent removal of all dangerous cladding, that the government should pay for remediation works and recover the costs from developers and others.

Protests will take place at sales offices for housing developments in England and Wales. Details of confirmed protests are available from the End Our Cladding Scandal website.
