On the 1st February, Justice4Grenfell hosted a Public Meeting titled ‘Grenfell: How can we get justice?’
We had some great speakers, such as Emma Dent Coad MP, Brian Richardson (Stand Up To Racism), Eileen Short (Defend Council Housing), Matt Wrack (Fire Brigades Union), Clarrie Mendy (Bereaved family member & Co-founder of Humanity4Grenfell) and Kevin Courtney (National Education Union). There were over 200 people in attendance, and some important points were made from the floor by the community.
The meeting raised some key Grenfell-related issues:
- Fire Safety
- Cuts to public services
- The lack of action that’s been taken on previous recommendations after similar avoidable tragedies
- A shocking amount of properties in RBKC are sitting empty, some for years
- The painful ongoing experience and frustrations of the bereaved families, survivors & the wider community
- 98 households are still in emergency accommodation
- No arrests
Look out for dates for future meetings. The fight for justice continues…!
