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.
