Sign the petition calling for an investigation and independent panel inquiry into the death of 7 year old Zane
Zane died in his home on 8 February 2014, a day after his home in Chertsey was hit by severe floods. There is evidence to suggest the cause of Zane’s death was hydrogen cyanide, a toxic gas that can lurk in unregulated landfill - like the one by Zane’s house - released from the ground by mixing with floodwater.

London Renters Union film screening and fundraiser by LUX
Wednesday 15 May 2019: 19:00 – 21:00. DIY Space for London, 96-108 Ormside St, London, SE15 1TF
A screening of ‘The Dilapidated Dwelling’ by Patrick Keiller. An examination of the house in advanced economies, the UK in particular. A fictional researcher (with the voice of Tilda Swinton) returns from a 20-year absence in the Arctic to find that, although the UK is one of the most electronic of the advanced economies, its houses are the most dilapidated in Western Europe. The screening is free for London Renters Union members. Non members can join at the door or make a small donation.
