Silent Walk for Grenfell Tower

Notting Hill, London. Tue 14 Nov 2017



 A large symbo with the message 'TRUTH''

 

 Numbers grow rapidly as the march gets ready to start

 at its front Zeyad Cred and also local clergy and the messages 'TRUTH', 'UNITY' ' GRENFELL'

 The burnt out shell of Grenfell Tower looms behind the marchers as they observe a minute of silence

 

 and then start the slow march

 

 going east towards Ladbroke Grove

 

 

 

 

 At Ladbroke Grove firefighters stand in respect next to their fire engine

 and the marchers pause in silent remembrance

 

 

 

 

 

 

 They move slowly on in silence towards the Maxilla Centre, but I stay on Ladbroke Gove

 as the rest of the thousand or more marchers go past

 At the back of the march are the more political groups such as the Revolutionary Communist Group, demanding

 answers and demanding justice and truth.

 

 

 and for the guilty to be brought to account. Everyone worries that there will be the usual establishment cover-up

 with the councillors and others who made Grenfell into a major fire risk escaping justice. As usual the enquiry will

 be used to delay prosecutions until it is too late, and its conclusions will be accepted with great publicity but not

 actually followed up in any way, perhaps just a few token actions, while the victims and the needs of those who

survived will be quietly forgotten. But many are determined that this will not happen. But they will need to keep up
the unity and keep up the fight. Already some say "Don't make it political", but it is highly political, and unless
the fight is political it will not get anywhere.
