Like a phoenix we will rise: Activism after Grenfell

Date
Tue 24.09.19
Timings
11am – 12:30pm

Grenfell must be a 'never again' moment in the history of this country. The fire has exposed incestuous relationships between local, as well as national government, and the construction industry. In or out of government, how can Labour effectively engage with this issue, beyond superficial lip service? How can Labour act now to put the party at the disposal of a horrified and haunted community forced to campaign through their trauma for the safety of all across the country?

Come and hear from those who have spent the last two years fighting tooth and nail for a justice which may never come.
