The violence that erupted in opposition to this The Group of Twenty (G20) forum which took place on Friday, July 7th and Saturday July 8th 7 in Hamburg, Germany made headlines in most national news broadcasted around the world.
"Cars and barricades ablaze, shops plundered, water cannons in constant operation, injuries, devastated city quarters, heavily-armed special police units: The images of the violence in Hamburg have circled the globe. And they stood in stark contrast to those of the 20 heads of state and government who, at the same time, were listening to Beethoven's "Ode to Joy" in Hamburg's chic new Elbphilharmonie concert hall. Classical music inside, clashes outside." (Spiegel.de) July 8, 2017.
A fire broke out in the Grenfell Tower, a 24-storey building located in West London on the early morning of Tuesday June 14, 2017 at about 1am.
The fire spread extremely quickly, engulfing the entire building in a matter of 15 minutes and condemning its inhabitants to a certain death.
The infamous building, demonized by both the government and the media, was mainly inhabited by poor and working class people from colonized places in Africa, Syria, the Caribbean, South Asia and elsewhere, along with poor white workers.
We united with all the demands from victims of this colonial mayhem, such as to be rehoused in the same borough.
We united to charge the Kensington and Chelsea Tenant Management organization KCMO, a subcontractor company that managed the Grenfell Tower on behalf of the Kensington and Chelsea local council–for murders!

Join the African Socialist International!
LONDON—Europe has entered a period of turbulence that produces uncertainty in many ways. The white population is concerned that uncertainty has become the norm.
Every election seems to throw a dismal outcome for the traditional parties and their rulers, despite the huge back up and fanciful predictions they get from their bourgeois mainstream press at the service of the capitalist class.
Italy’s recent elections on Sunday, December 4, 2016 added fuel to the growing crisis in Europe, where the mainstream parties and their leaders were successfully challenged by new political forces.
The immigration violence in October 2016 by the French police against the traumatized and impoverished colonial people fleeing U.S.-led NATO wars was world news.
French police demolished the Calais “Jungle” tearing down the makeshift homes of the 7,000 residents.
