Adele isn’t about to let what happened at the Grenfell Tower apartment complex to be swept under the rug and forgotten. The singer tweeted a petition, requesting the support of fans to call on Prime Minister Theresa May, “to take urgent action to restore their faith in the Grenfell Tower inquiry.”
The petition calls on May to not allow the inquiry to led by a single judge but by a panel of experts with “relevant background , expertise, experience & understanding of issues facing those affected.” It also seeks legal representation for bereaved families to see evidence and question witnesses during the hearings.
“We must keep on talking about what is still not happening,” Adele wrote, regarding the tragic fire at a London apartment complex in June that killed 71 individuals, many of whom were low-income immigrants.
Please sign this with me! We need your help to sign and spread the petition and encourage others to do the same. It’s been almost 6 months now, we must keep on talking about what is still not happening xx. https://t.co/nPggtLj9a1 pic.twitter.com/cZH89Q7pfE

Adele has been insistent that the government provide some answers for victims since the unfortunate event took place, raising money for those affected during her recent tour and attending a vigil the day following the fire. In a show of affection that really proved Adele’s care for her own community, the singer even hosted children who were affected by the fire for a screening of Despicable Me 3 and brought tea and cake to firefighters.
The horrific early morning fire shocked the nation as thousands watched a blaze that burned up to 1,800 degrees tear through the 24-story apartment building covered in a sheath of silver cladding that authorities later determined helped spread and intensify the fire.
