Remembering Grenfell - 3 years on
Sunday 14 June will mark three years since the devastating fire at Grenfell Tower.
We are currently living through unprecedented times during Covid-19, but it’s imperative we continue to remember the 72 people who lost their lives in the blaze. This year events of remembrance and reflection will be online.
At 6pm, churches across London including St Paul’s Cathedral and Westminster Abbey will be ringing their bells 72 times to mark the third anniversary. The ringing will be followed by a two-minute silence and vigil.
Landmarks across London are also expected to be bathed in green light — the colour of Grenfell campaign for justice.
How you can join in:
At 11am a virtual church service, organised and hosted by Clarrie Mendy, who lost relatives in the fire, will take place.
During the afternoon and evening, conversations with the Grenfell community, supporters and guests will be hosted on Instagram Live (join at instagram.com/grenfell_united), instead of the usual Grenfell Silent Walk, which attracted thousands of people and is simply impossible due to the pandemic.
At 6pm, those who wish to can join through YouTube (youtube.com/grenfellunited) for Grenfell United: Online Remembrance and Reflection. This is to remember the 72 lives lost and reflect on the ongoing journey to justice and change.
The YouTube streaming will also show the ringing of the bells 72 times to mark the third anniversary of the Grenfell Tower fire.
The virtual memorial shows it is still possible to show solidarity and raise our voices together. Even apart we remain together until justice comes.
