‘Protestors have been blasted as ‘thugs’ in claims that they set off smoke grenades at the Grenfell Tower memorial in an angry protest over the Labour party’s policy over transgender rights.
Video shows clear puffs of smoke as the activists cover their faces with scarves and chant: ‘Trans women are women’.
They gathered in Kensington, West London, last night close to the site of the 2017 blaze, which killed 72 people.
They were protesting against a group called Labour Women’s Declaration who believe demands for rights from transgender pressure groups will infringe the rights of women as the Labour party is seized by infighting over the issue.
A Twitter user named Aja shared footage of the protest online, adding: ‘Labour women’s declaration meeting protested by t****. They set off smoke grenades.’
