'Day of Rage' protesters target Queen's Speech to 'bring down the government'

• https://www.rt.com

Three protests, including a "day of rage" demonstration, are being held to coincide with the Queen's Speech, the formal unveiling of the government's legislative agenda.

One protest organized by the Movement for Justice By Any Means Necessary (MJF), is demanding local housing for the displaced residents of Grenfell Tower and for all residents who do not have immigration papers to be given a permanent right to remain in the UK.

Organizer Karen Doyle told RT what happened at Grenfell Tower amounts to "mass murder" and the government must be held accountable.

"What happened in Grenfell … was the result of a government that has consistently put business interests and money and profits above the lives and safety of people - working class people, immigrants - for years. They're being squeezed out of London to make way for big business.

"We are furious. We are so furious at what happened in Grenfell - potentially 100 lives lost from negligence and disdain of poor and immigrant communities."
