Workers Party Marks the 7th Anniversary of the Grenfell Fire

14 June 2024

We remember the tragic Grenfell Tower Fire that claimed 72 innocent lives seven years ago on the 14th of June 2017. The Workers Party of Great Britain stands in solidarity with the families, survivors, and community of Grenfell, seeking justice as we honour those who perished in one of the most devastating and avoidable tragedies in recent history.

George Galloway, Leader of the Workers Party GB, stated:

“The lives lost in the Grenfell Tower Fire are a stark reminder of the catastrophic consequences of corporate greed and negligence. Seventy-two people died due to systemic failures and profit-driven motives that prioritised cost-cutting over human safety. It is unacceptable that not a single person has been held criminally accountable for this atrocity. Justice delayed is justice denied. Corporate greed must end, and those responsible for this tragedy must face criminal charges to ensure such a disaster never happens again.”

The Workers Party GB is deeply committed to ensuring that justice is served for the victims and that meaningful reforms are implemented to prevent future tragedies. We call for:

  1. Criminal Accountability: Those responsible for the Grenfell tragedy must be brought to justice. The lack of criminal charges against those whose negligence led to this disaster is a grave injustice.
  2. Stricter Regulations and Enforcement: We advocate for implementing robust safety standards and regulations for all residential buildings. These regulations must be strictly enforced to ensure the safety and security of all residents.
  3. Corporate Responsibility: Companies must be held accountable for their actions. We will push for laws that impose severe penalties on corporations that neglect safety standards and endanger lives.
  4. Community Support and Empowerment: The Grenfell community has shown remarkable resilience. We pledge to support their ongoing fight for justice and provide the necessary resources to aid their recovery and empowerment.
  5. Housing Reform: The Workers Party GB will work tirelessly to ensure every citizen can access safe, secure, and affordable housing. We believe housing is a fundamental human right and will fight to make this a reality for all.

On this seventh anniversary, we renew our commitment to the memory of those who lost their lives in Grenfell. We will continue to stand with the survivors and the community, advocating for justice, accountability, and reform. Grenfell’s legacy must be one of change, driven by the people’s voices and backed by strong, decisive action.
