Grenfell protest celebrates Russian Revolution

Kensington & Chelsea Town Hall, London. Wed 25 Oct 2017



 Ian Bone, Sid Skill and Jane Nicholl of Class War with their Lucy Parsons banner

 

  'They Got Hell On Earth - Peace in Heaven - We want Justice for Grenfell - They Wealth Your Death'.

 handing out leaflets against the proposed merger of Genesis and Notting Hill Housing Associations.

 

 

 

 

 Labour Councillor Robert Thompson is interviewed for TV in front of the Class War banner

 

 Class War take their banner up the council steps

 

 And Ian Bone, who lived in Grenfell Tower when he first came to London, speaks

 

 Sid Skill shouts

 

 

 

 

 People call for the council to go as they are failing the residents of North Kensington, particularly those affected by the Grenfell fire

 The council and the management body they set up created a fire trap by cost cutting and dangerous changes to the tower

 including the cladding, which was improperly designed and made of cheap, unsuitable material, improper gas

 installation. There was only a single exit and no proper water supply to the highest floors for firefighting. The council

 arranged for fire inspections which were deliberately inadequate to save costs, and ignored the many complaints

 about safety from residents.

 Since the fire their response has been pathetic, with those made homeless still waiting to be rehoused, families
 living in a single small hotel room or placed in poor temporary accomodation, or offered housing a hundred miles away...

 The find banner by Andrew Cooper for the Revolutionary Communist Group 'Housing is a Right, Not a privilege'
    
  Few have any faith that the inquiry will be anything other than a whitewash. Or that any of the Government's promises will be kept.
