On Sunday Dr. Lenora Fulani led a protest march against the privatization of public housing here in NYC, a process in which many of the 600,000 poor and working people who live there will lose their homes. We observed a moment of silence in solidarity with the hundreds who lost their homes and, in at least 79 cases, their lives in a fire in Grenfell Tower, a public housing project in London two weeks ago.
Here is a poem by Nigerian poet Ben Okri about the Grenfell tragedy.
