Grenfell Silent Walk - 6 months on

London, UK. 14th December 2017



 I was late arriving at Notting Hill Methodist and the silent march was starting early, with people already

 in line behind the banner

 grieving relatives and those who escaped from the flames and local clergy

 Police and stewards understanably keep the media away from the front of the march and it was very dark

 and difficult to take pictures

 

 

 

 

 

 One marcher holds a poster 'F**K social cleansing'

 others have white roses and photographs of some of those who died in the blazing tower

 many hold green battery candles too

 and others carry large green heart-shapes for Grenfell

 Some have message 'JUST US' , 'GRENFELL', 'JUSTICE'.

 The march proceeds slowly and in silence along the street

 

 

 

 'F**K social cleansing'

 'Justice For Grenfell'

 

 

 'PEACE', 'GRENFELL' - Justice for Grenfell

 

 'JUSTICE', 'GRENFELL'

 

 Many feel the official inquiry will not get at the truth about why the tower was made into a huge fire risk

 despite the warnings of some who lived there, which the TMO and Kensington and Chelsea Council ignored
     
 even threatening legal action against some people who brought up the issues  

 

 

A banner says 'Fight For Justice' and the community will not get it unless they keep on fighting
