    Three trucks with bright billboards took to the streets of London on Thursday. The distinct bold style of the message is a reference to the Hollywood drama film Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri.

    71 people died. Still hundreds of survivors are homeless. Still there is no justice. How come? This is the message of a clever campaign to draw attention to the case of the Grenfell Tower fire in London that claimed lives of 71 people in June 2017.

    The blaze, which started with a faulty refrigerator on the fourth floor of the 24-story tower rapidly spread up the new cladding on the outside because of its cheap, highly flammable panels.

    Activists from the Justice4Grenfell campaign have launched an eye-catching action "to keep this tragedy in the national conscience, to make our voices heard."

    Their focus is to obtain justice for the victims, hold local authorities and the government responsible and ensure the horrific tragedy doesn't happen again.  

    According to the Department for Housing, Communities and Local Government, while 299 of the 312 buildings tested in the UK in recent months, only 26 have had the dangerous cladding fully removed.

    The style of the campaign is inspired by the Oscar-nominated film about a grieving mother who puts up three billboards asking the local police chief why there were no arrests made following the rape and murder of her teenage daughter.
