Moyra Samuels has lived near Grenfell Tower for over 30 years. On 14th June 2017, she watched in horror as catastrophic fire raged through the residential block, killing 72 people. She immediately became involved in the relief operations in the community following the fire and is now Project Manager for Justice4Grenfell.
A long-time activist from South Africa, Moyra grew up under apartheid and was radicalised as the movement for civil rights took off across the globe. We discuss the shape of the campaign so far, her own path to politics and the lack of action from government and corporations on what has become a tragic symbol of austerity Britain.
