Who Do You Blame?

Submitted by Janine on Thu, 28/06/2018 - 09:29

Those who fought it
or those who caused it?

Those who saved sixty-five
or those who cost seventy-two?

Those who did not know the tower was clad in torchwood
or those who chose that cladding because it was cheaper?

Those whose chosen job is to walk into burning buildings to save life
or those whose careers are built on making money by cutting corners?

RMT invites its members (and their guests) to join us at our National Education Centre to mark the first anniversary of the Grenfell Tower Fire.
