New Cross Fire 40th Anniversary
The children led a minute’s silence at the house, placing flowers for the victims and finishing with the Bob Marley anthem ‘No woman no Cry’ and its evocative lyrics:-
“In this bright future, you can’t forget your past, so dry your tears I pray.”
At the memorial in Fordham Park, the park from which the protest march in 1981 started, the children read their own poems and placed candles for each victim at the memorial stone. May they rest in Peace.
