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.
