Grenfell Tower Fire - Second Anniversary
The Grenfell Tower fire devastated an entire community. The Fire Brigades Union has been clear from the start that we stand alongside the bereaved, survivors and residents as well as the wider North Kensington community in the campaign for justice.
We continue to fully support our London members who attended the fire and performed with remarkable professionalism and courage in unimaginable circumstances. We have argued that the interests of FBU members do not in any way conflict with those of the community and we have sought to engage with the community from the start.
As the second anniversary of the fire approaches, we urge members to consider attending one or both of the following events in order to remember the lives lost in the fire and bring people together in the campaign for justice and change:
Silent Walk - North Kensington 14th June 2019
On the 14th of June 2019 the Grenfell Silent walk will take place in North Kensington. The walk is open to everyone and is a peaceful, dignified way to show support.
Many FBU members from London and from across the country have attended one of these monthly silent walks. The bereaved, survivors and residents of Grenfell Tower have stated that they draw strength from the walk and the support shown by those who attend.
The Silent Walk is scheduled to begin at Notting Hill Methodist Church, Lancaster Road, London W11 4AH (nearest tube Latimer Road). We are calling on FBU members to begin to form up from 19:00hrs for a 19:45hrs start.
The details for the march, which is organised locally, is published on the ‘Grenfell Tower – Silent Walk’ Facebook page. Members should check this prior to travel.
Justice4Grenfell Solidarity March
A solidarity march has been organised by the campaign group ‘Justice4Grenfell’. This takes place on Saturday 15th June outside Downing Street, London, SW1A 1AA at 12 noon.
If at all possible, please do what you can to attend one or both of these events with workmates, family and friends.
