Support us and go ad-free

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.
