de Menezes Family Campaign Launch And Rally

Next Monday (the 10th October) the LSE will be hosting the official campaign launch of the Jean Charles de Menezes Family Campaign.

The aim behind the campaign is to:

- find out the truth about Jean’s unlawful killing.

- bring those responsible for his death to justice.

- end the ‘Shoot to Kill’ policy and so prevent a similar tragedy happening again.

- to campaign against the rising tide of racism and the attack on civil liberties in the UK.

Speakers at the event will include:

Family and friends, including Jean's parents and his brother.

The de Menezes family's lawyer, Gareth Peirce.

Irene Khan - Secretary General of Amnesty International

Matthew Taylor MP

Frank Dobson MP

Yvonne Ridley - Journalist / Respect National Council

and...erm, Bianca Jagger.

The campaign launch will take place at the LSE New Theatre, East Building, Houghton St, between 6.30 and 9pm.
