>Saturday 23 May – assemble 3pm Trafalgar Square
March via Downing Street to New Scotland Yard.
The United Campaign Against Police Violence has called a national demonstration to highlight the issues of police violence and demand justice for those who have died in police custody.
The police tactic of “kettling” demonstrators – essentially detaining protestors and bystanders without charge – will be turned on its head on the protest, when we kettle New Scotland Yard.
At the end of the protest there will be a naming of the dead for those who have died in police custody, led by the families of the bereaved who have yet to receive justice. Over 1000 people have died in police custody in the last 40 years – yet no one has been found responsible.
Protestors will demand the disbanding of the Territorial Support Group, the resignation of “Independent” Police Complaints Commission chair Nick Hardwick, justice for those killed in police custody and for the right to protest.
