As we mark the third anniversary of the Grenfell Tower fire, rapper, activist and writer Lowkey spoke to The Canary about what went wrong, what’s changed, and who’s responsible.
In the video, Lowkey shines a spotlight on cladding company Arconic, insulation manufacturer Celotex, then housing minister (now Lord) Gavin Barwell, and others who bear responsibility but have never been held properly to account.
We know everyone is suffering under the Tories - but the Canary is a vital weapon in our fight back, and we need your support
The Canary Workers’ Co-op knows life is hard. The Tories are waging a class war against us we’re all having to fight. But like trade unions and community organising, truly independent working-class media is a vital weapon in our armoury.
The Canary doesn’t have the budget of the corporate media. In fact, our income is over 1,000 times less than the Guardian’s. What we do have is a radical agenda that disrupts power and amplifies marginalised communities. But we can only do this with our readers’ support.
So please, help us continue to spread messages of resistance and hope. Even the smallest donation would mean the world to us.
