3 Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri is a film about a crime that is ignored.

At the center of the story is the power of 3 billboards to force people’s attention back onto this crime, in the hope that one-day justice will be served.

Speaking to members of Justice4Grenfell it became clear to us that 8 months on from the tragedy of the Grenfell Tower fire, the key issues are being downplayed or ignored.

“71 men, women and children lost their lives as a result of the fire.

And still no arrests.
And still 297 flammable clad towers.
And still hundreds of survivors without permanent homes.
And still no diverse Inquiry Panel.
And still there is no justice.”

The film cleaned up at the Golden Globes and is nominated for 9 Baftas and 7 Oscars. So these 3 billboards are here to hijack the attention being given to this film, to keep Justice for Grenfell in the national conscience, to make sure that the voices of those no longer with us are heard.

Justice4Grenfell call for change to a system that let 71 people die; this was avoidable – if only they had been listened to earlier.

You can add your voice; retweet, share, talk.

As Mildred Hayes says in the film, “The more you keep a case in the public eye, the better your chances are at getting it solved.”

  1. The overwhelming consensus in North Kensington is that this is a very classy bit of activism. It is cool, arresting, interactive, funny and true. Last night 1000 of us walked through relentless rain from the Town Hall to Grenfell and no-one took a blind bit of notice. In a way, we don’t mind because we aren’t going away. This photobombed the debate and suddenly, pictures of the march have value.

    Thanks. Vorsprung durch Technique

  2. To Whoever Conceived This Ad

    Check this out. Saul Alinsky’s Rules For Radicals, A Pragmatic Primer for Realistic Radicals. JFGI. Not only is it beautifully written, but the 13 Rules are Sun Tzu’s Art of War for the current War of Equality. It works. We used the Rules to win our battle against the regeneration of the Silchester Estate by the wicked RBKC.



  3. This yesterday was bloody brilliant! As someone who had totally lost faith in Justice4Grenfell, feeling they were more concerned about getting their SWP political messages and support out there in guise of fighting for Grenfell…particularly when some of their leaders take every single possible photo opportunity they can(!! kmt at the silent march it is SO disrespectful), this has reinstated my original belief that they are for us and for all social tenants fighting to gain our rights from our council landlords who continuously fail us.
    Well done J4G, this has re-awoken the mass media who had confined us to small scathing articles in back pages…we are united, we will continue to do whatever is possible, legal, dignified and within our limits to get justice not only for our dead of North Kensington, but all social housing tenants in the country!

  4. Just came across this on your site by chance. Grenfell remains on my mind as an ex-Londoner. Seeing the billboards on a blog several weeks ago made me sit up as I hope it did many others. The main point remains the lack of justice but here, the context is about the message. A great idea, simply executed in complete service to the point that needs to be made…in perpetuity. Well done on the campaign. Moreover, well done to the campaigners. RIP.
