Justice4Grenfell are pleased to offer our support to @Justice4Mark. Here’s the flyer for their upcoming event:
Greetings Brothers, Sisters and Comrades
Once again the family of Mark Duggan asks for your support on the 6th anniversary of the Mark’s death.
Many more have died at the hands of the state since, in fact its now happening more regularly than ever before with THREE deaths of young Black people at the hands of the police having occurred just this month.
We must not forget those who have been taken from their loved ones in such a cruel fashion.
We, the family of Mark Duggan, would be grateful if you would support us by attending the annual MARCH AND RALLY that replicates the steps taken by the community on the fateful day in August 2011 that led to the 6 days of uprisings across England.
We are still here!
We are still fighting against injustice….WE STILL SAY THAT THE SHOOTING OF AN UNARMED MAN IS UNLAWFUL AND UNJUST!
What say you?
Friday 14th July 2017 at 6pm
Bay 56, 4 – 8 Acklam Village, Acklam Road, W10 5TY
One Voice Community Collective and members of #The Real Community invites you to attend a press conference at “The Village” Bay 56, 4 – 8 Acklam Village, Acklam Road, W10 5TY just off Portobello Road on Friday 14th July at 6pm.
One Voice Community Collective and members of #The Real Community will present a grassroots report from the Ladbroke Grove Community who have been maintaining and delivering an unprecedented and historic aid effort without the assistance or support from the government or local council. This will be the first in a series of press conferences, which shall focus on specific issues surrounding the Grenfell Tower fire. The aim is to breakdown many of the issues in order to focus and add clarity to the realities faced on a daily basis.
On Friday you will hear first hand accounts from those on the frontline of this unprecedented disaster. We will testify to the love and commitment shown to the victims by ordinary members of the community. Irony has shown it’s those who have the least that ultimately end up giving the most.
Just over four weeks ago our lives where changed forever. Since the fateful night of the Grenfell Tower Fire we have had to the face an almost impossible task of filling the void in response to what was not fulfilled by the government, local council and charitable bodies in terms of aid and support for the true victims of the fire.
We hit the ground running and collectively we’ve had to learn and adapt to the reality of dealing with an unprecedented emergency situation, whilst at the same time being a community in deep grief and trauma.
With so many unanswered questions our mission is to find long-term solutions to rebuild our unified community.

The BBC has produced this thoroughly researched timeline of the events of 14th June which we feel merits sharing whilst being aware that some may find it difficult to read/view due to the subject matter.
Messages from the tower
Piecing together the timeline of London’s Grenfell Tower fire in the words of victims and survivors (BBC News)
George Monbiot outlines why the Government must not be allowed to dictate who is the Chair of the Public Inquiry into the Grenfell Fire nor the Terms of Reference. He discusses the very real prospect of Brexit leading to a “bonfire of red tape”, the Tory euphemism for basically removing all protection and rights from workers. Essential viewing.
