On Saturday 9 August, unarmed, black teenager, Michael Brown was shot dead by police in Ferguson, Missouri.
People in the United States and around the world have rightly been outraged. Brown’s murder is the latest in a long line of killings by US police of black men. Five have been murdered in the past month alone. Protestors have taken to the streets of Ferguson, Missouri every night since the incident demanding justice for Michael and an end to police killings. The Police response to the demonstrations has harked back to the days prior to the Civil Rights Movement. They have used tear gas, dogs, automatic weapons and armoured cars on demonstrators. Michael’s murder highlights the deeply racist nature of US society today, however, deaths in police custody are not limited to America. As we have seen in the cases of Mark Duggan, Smiley Culture, Sean Rigg, and Christopher Alder to name but a few.
Show solidarity with the family of Michael Brown, and the Ferguson demonstrators.
Join the demonstration outside the US Embassy in London to demand an end to racist, police killings.
