A local community centre at the heart of the community’s response to the Grenfell Tower tragedy has become the regular venue for meetings of the ‘Justice4Grenfell’ group.
The Establishment media has already begun a ‘victim-blaming’ campaign reminiscent of the aftermath of the Hillsborough disaster to reduce public support for survivors and their supporters, for example Sky News anchor Adam Boulton recently ignoring the group’s clearly-articulated reasons to state that it’s a ‘fact’ that the group is objecting to the judge appointed by the government to head its narrow inquiry ‘because he’s white and middle-class’.
Now locals are worried that someone is making direct efforts to undermine and hamper the group.
Justice4Grenfell arrived for its latest meeting at the centre to find that the wires of the PA system speakers had been cut and the facilities’ toilets had all been blocked by someone jamming handwash bottles down them.
The centre’s manager told the SKWAWKBOX:
This could be ordinary vandalism, but it’s odd that it’s never happened before and occurred just in time for the Justice4Grenfell group’s meeting. Cutting the speaker wires and making it hard for people to make themselves heard to a roomful of people seems to be an odd form of vandalism, too. But it would be an effective way to sabotage the meeting.
Coming on top of events described to the SKWAWKBOX and reported earlier today, whatever the motivation and source of the ‘sabotage’, it will do little to improve the confidence of campaigners and other local people in fair treatment for their cause.
