Grenfell survivors three years on: 'It fits at the heart of Black Lives Matter'        Video        Guardian        13 JUne 2020

 

With the three-year anniversary of Grenfell happening

in the midst of a global pandemic,

the community is having to adapt their usual way

of marking and remembering what happened on 14 June 2017.

 

This year they are having to come together online.

 

Guardian journalist Iman Amrani speaks to former Grenfell residents

about life three years on, and about how Grenfell is linked

to Black Lives Matter, Windrush and Covid-19

The Tower Next Door: Living in the shadow of Grenfell        Video        The Guardian        14 June 2018

 

In June 2017 residents of the Silchester estate

woke to discover Grenfell Tower engulfed in flames,

witnessing a terrifying national tragedy

unfolding on their doorstep.

 

The tower bore

a striking resemblance to their own.

 

The victims were people they knew,

people from all walks of life who, like them,

made a home for themselves

high up above the clamour of the city.

 

Faced with an uncertain future,

the residents of the tower next door are fighting

to rebuild their community, and their place within it
