UFFC march against deaths in custody 2011

Since 1969, three thousand one hundred and eighty people have died in police, prison, psychiatric or immigration custody.

Think about that for a moment.

That’s three thousand one hundred and eighty people – all of whom were someone’s son or someone’s daughter – who died unnecessarily and often in deeply suspicious circumstances. Three thousand one hundred and eighty people who arbitrarily and tragically lost their right to live their lives, their right to a future, their right to spend time with their friends and families.

And very, very few of those families have ever had justice.

That is why the United Families and Friends Campaign remembers each and every one of these men and women, each and every year – and you can see some of my photographs from the 2011 march for justice above.

    Apologies – due to a recent spate of somewhat insensitive spammers plaguing this post, I’m temporarily closing comments on it. Hopefully they’ll eventually get bored and go away….
