Heartbreaking video as #Grenfell residents count out their true toll

On Sunday, exasperated at the continued failure of the authorities to acknowledge the true scale of the tragedy in their block, Grenfell Tower residents took matters into their own hands – and recorded their grief, anger and loss on video for the world.

If the world is listening.

The video is simple, low-tech and utterly heart-breaking. But we have a human duty to watch, to feel their pain and not to forget or allow the government to dilute our awareness by drip-feeding the number of deaths incrementally when it’s common knowledge that at least one hundred and fifty bodies are already in a makeshift morgue.

There has been no minute’s silence for the victims of the Grenfell Tower fire, as there was for those of the recent terror attacks – and be assured that it matters keenly to the survivors and their neighbours. So give them a few minutes to watch this and to feel with them – then share it, so that others can do so too:

  1. “If the world is listening.”

    This part of the world is listening.
        I had to join in with that count – so moving to think that each one of those little numbers, only about a couple of seconds each, represents whole people, whole lifetimes! I now have tears in my eyes.

  2. The truth is they could publish a list of the missing and those that have already been established as dead. Is it because then we would all realise the true impact of this tragedy, and would angrily demand heads should roll over this.
    Nothing short of prison sentences will be good enough.

    Corporate manslaughter.
