PCS condemns 'cruel' Grenfell effigy burning

06 Nov 2018

A video circulated on social media showing a model replica of the tower being burnt in someone's back garden bonfire has been widely condemned.

The PCS today condemned the cruel burning of an effigy of Grenfell tower on Bonfire night and the subsequent video which was circulated widely on social media.

The hatred expressed towards the victims of the fire in the video underlines the need for increased unity across society to confront hatred and bigotry.

It should be noted that it is incredible that no one has ever been prosecuted for causing the fire itself.

The PCS had 3 members and their families who were directly impacted by the fire and we extend our solidarity to them and all the other victims.  

The union is affiliated to the Justice4Grenfell campaign.
