I found this video on twitter, speaking nothing but the truth. They won’t show you this on mainstream news outlets, they constantly try to take away the voices of marginalized communities, putting the government before the people. I strongly suggest watching this and sharing far and wide, this is the real story. No more bullshit cover ups and political agendas, just listen to the people directly affected. It’s their voice that matters. They deserve answers and JUSTICE. #GrenfellTower#JusticeForGrenfell
At least six people have died after an “unprecedented” fire ripped through a residential tower block in west London.
Twenty people are in critical condition. Seventy-four people have been treated and admitted to at six hospitals across the capital, the London Ambulance Service said.
The PM is “deeply saddened” by the “tragic” events. Sajid Javid, secretary of state for communities and local government, will chair an emergency Cobra meeting today.
The fire brigade was first called at shortly before 1am on Wednesday to Grenfell Tower in Latimer Road, north Kensington, London. Emergency responders were on the scene within six minutes.
Forty-five engines, 200 firefighters, and 100 medical personnel attended the scene, in addition to a number of police officers. Fire crews have reached the 20th floor, and a structural engineer, as well as urban search and rescue advisers, is monitoring the building.
If you’re ever unsure about what it means to be a Londoner… this is it. The whole community of Kensington and beyond, pulling together to help those affected by the devastating Grenfell Tower fire.
People of all faiths donating their clothes, shoes, supplies and time to help those in need. Churches, mosques, sports halls and more have all been opening their doors and we’ve heard stories of many people welcoming people into their homes and others paying for hotel rooms for those affected.
This is London. We stick up for each other in the face of any adversity and although there will always be people who try to undermine this, we will never lose this sense of community and wanting to help our neighbours.
At least six people are dead after a massive fire broke out in a London apartment building, the BBC reported Wednesday, and more than 70 people have been hospitalized.
The cause of the fire has not yet been determined.
The massive fire engulfed the Grenfell Tower, a 24-story apartment building in London’s Kensington neighborhood. London Fire Commissioner Dany Cotton told reporters that the “size and complexity” of the building made assessing the number of fatalities complicated.
Cotton told reporters that the fire was an “unprecedented incident,” according to the BBC. Read more (6/14/17 10 AM)
Not mine but I share this having seen no better capturing of what this disaster is, the force behind it, and who is victimized most by it. The regeneration effort was motivated by the looks of it being an eyesore, well now it really is an eyesore.
