Grenfell Tower

Grief turns to anger as furious Grenfell Tower protesters storm Kensington Town Hall chanting 'we want justice' and 'murderers' and BOO Theresa May as she visits nearby support centre


  • Demonstrators gathered outside the local council's headquarters today with questions for local officials
  • Some of the group then got inside Kensington town hall, west London chanting 'murderers' and 'cowards'
  • At least 300 people appeared outside the building this afternoon, chanting slogans and waving placards
  • Group demanded that council re-home those displaced by the fire immediately and within the borough
  • Council says it will find accommodation for those affected 'as quickly as we can' and said it is releasing funds
Frustrations over the fatal Grenfell Tower fire boiled over today as residents demanding answers over the blaze stormed Kensington town hall.
Hundreds of people gathered outside the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea headquarters in west London wanting to know how the tragedy could have happened.
It came as Prime Minister Theresa May faced angry scenes as she met the group of victims, residents, volunteers and community leaders at St Clement's Church close to the scene of the horrific blaze.  
The Prime Minister was booed and jeered after she met survivors of the inferno but failed to address people demanding a response to the devastating fire. 
An angry protestor shouted: 'What is she doing here? She's going back to her nice cosy home. Why has she come only on Friday? Get the f*** out.'
Other people shouted 'murderer' and 'coward' at the Prime Minister as she abandoned the meeting to return to the security of Downing Street. Police broke up a scuffle between members of the crowd as Mrs May's car drove off.
Councillors are among those who face serious questions over the apparent safety failings which led to the fire spreading quickly up the tower block on Tuesday night.
The protesters initially gathered outside the building, insisting that those displaced by the disaster be housed with the London borough rather than elsewhere.
But some of the group then went through the door chanting 'we want justice' and pushed up the stairs towards the authority's offices.  Some shouted 'murderers' while others yelled 'cowards'.

Geert Mak Pleit Nu Voor Vriendschap met Rusland

Ik kwam zojuist mijn oude vriend, de bestseller-auteur en mainstream-opiniemaker Geert Mak in de regen op straat tegen. Na elkaar te hebben begroet, vertelde Geert mij dat hij van oordeel is dat Europa zo snel mogelijk met Rusland om de tafel moet gaan zitten, om de opgelopen spanningen te de√ęscaleren. De VS heeft heel andere belangen dan 'wij,' aldus Mak, die benadrukte dat de macht van 'onze' Atlantische bondgenoot ingrijpend aan het afnemen is. Kortom, ik hoorde wat ikzelf al enige jaren op mijn weblog schrijf. Opvallend hoe een Nederlandse opiniemaker binnen zo'n betrekkelijk korte tijd zo wezenlijk van oordeel kan veranderen.  Immers, Mak’s gevaarlijke anti-Rusland hetze was een treffend voorbeeld van zijn opportunisme. Mei 2014 beweerde op de Hilversumse televisie de zogeheten ‘chroniqueur van Amsterdam, Nederland, Europa en de VS,’ dat er sprake was van een 'Russische gevaar,’ aangezien ‘meneer Poetin’ aan ‘landjepik’ deed en dat de Russische president d…

Native American Rape Survivors

A sign marks the entrance to White Earth Indian Reservation in Mahnomen County, Minn. (J. Stephen Conn / CC 2.0) WHITE EARTH RESERVATION, Minn.—Candice (not her real name) awoke with a start. Someone was pulling down her sweatpants. It was a male friend. “Stop!” she shouted. He kept groping her. She kicked him and he fell off the bed. She dashed out of the bedroom, tripping and tumbling down the stairs. Gripped with fear, she heard his footsteps behind her in the dark and forced herself to stand upright as she staggered out to the porch. Candice was still intoxicated. She got into her car and drove into a ditch. A white police officer pulled up. She struggled to hold back tears as she told him about the attempted rape. All the officer saw was a drunk and disorderly Native American woman. He dismissed Candice’s report of sexual assault as a lie she had made up to avoid getting a DUI. He did not take her to the hospital for a forensic exam. The sexual assault was not recorded in his pol…
