Friends Meeting House
London NW1. Tube: Euston
Jean Charles de Menezes was killed by armed police inside Stockwell Tube station on 22 July. His execution brought worldwide attention to a shoot to kill policy that the Prime Minster and the Metropolitan Police Commissioner say is here to stay. We say \’NO SHOOT TO KILL\’ and demand an end to this brutal policy. Jean Charles was not the first victim of police shootings – Derek Bennett, Azelle Rodney, Harry Stanley and James Ashley are just some of the other people that have been shot dead on the streets of Britain. Their families continue to fight for justice. If you want to support these families. If you want to see those responsible for these killings prosecuted. If you want to defend human rights in the UK then attend this meeting and the events that will follow.
The so called \’War on Terror\’ is being used as an excuse for increasing militarisation of the police and increased powers that are already leading to miscarriages of justice. If we do not take a stand on this issue now then others will suffer. Support and join the \’NO SHOOT TO KILL\’ campaign before it is too late.
