Grenfell: the struggle continues

Andrew Butler

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 need your help ...

The coronavirus pandemic is changing our world, fast. And we will do all we can to keep bringing you news and analysis throughout. But we are worried about maintaining enough income to pay our staff and minimal overheads.

Now, more than ever, we need a vibrant, independent media that holds the government to account and calls it out when it puts vested economic interests above human lives. We need a media that shows solidarity with the people most affected by the crisis – and one that can help to build a world based on collaboration and compassion.

We have been fighting against an establishment that is trying to shut us down. And like most independent media, we don’t have the deep pockets of investors to call on to bail us out.

Can you help by chipping in a few pounds each month?
