Justice4Grenfell is an independent, community led campaign established by local people as a response to the Grenfell Tower fire disaster of 14 June 2017 in North Kensington. The tower block burnt for over 60 hours with hundreds of people and firefighters, despite their brave attempts to save lives, watching helplessly.
The current official figures have confirmed 80 people dead and 70 injured but many tenants are still deemed ‘missing’ and many others remain unidentified. A definite official death toll is likely to be announced at the beginning of 2018. Everyone is expecting the final total to be appallingly high. A greater tragedy is that every life could have been saved as the spread of fire was preventable.
The campaign was launched five days later, on 19 June, during a Walk of Silence supported by Michael Mansfield QC, an eminent human rights lawyer. The campaign has been established with 4 explicit aims:
- To remember and honour the names and lives of men, women and children – who lost their lives in the dreadful fire and the impact of the carnage on survivors and wider community.
- Coordinate information about legal rights, entitlements, hearings, processes and emotional support, including trauma, for those directly affected so that justice can be attained without delay and in an open and transparent manner.
- Develop a public interest campaign to hold all the authorities and individuals to account for their failure to provide safe homes, death of loved ones and lack of proper & effective response during and after the disaster.
- Create a unified community voice on this issue to ensure that we are properly consulted throughout the whole process; that lessons are learnt to avoid similar events and loss of life ever happening again.
