Mayor of London snubs families of victims of the New Cross Fire

The families of the New Cross Fire victims are still suffering.

This is my letter to the mayor of London, please support the families of the victims of the New Cross Fire by contacting Boris Johnson yourself and demand to know why he is ignoring the needs of the black community.

Dear Mayor

This year constitutes the 30th anniversary of the New Cross Fire and as I'm sure you know, there was a memorial event and the unveiling of a blue plaque dedicated to the victims and their families. You neither attended despite being invited nor acknowledged this event nor did you send a representative, offer your apologies or send the organisers and families involved a letter of support. Can you please explain to me why you should choose to treat the black community with such obvious contempt?

Further in relation to your involvement in other tragic commemorations can you provide me with a list of those events you have participated in over the the period of your Mayoralty detailing your involvement with each. Thank you.

Lee Jasper
