Grenfell 4th Anniversary

It has been four years since that fateful day of the Grenfell fire, that claimed the lives of 72 people, yet not a single person has been held to account. The Grenfell Inquiry is to date, ongoing.

We stand in full solidarity with the families and friends of those whose lives were lost, in remembering and commemorating their legacy.

As you know the activities at the La Soufriere volcano in Saint Vincent and the Grenadines have become a matter of serious concern and that the Prime Minister issued an evacuation order for people living around the area of the volcano.  That order affected in excess of 20,000 people.  In less than 24 hours more than 2,000 people entered shelters provided by the Government.  This number will inevitably increase.  These shelters are schools, churches, community centres and hotels.

The evacuation process will increase depending on the intensity of … Read on ...
