Una altra vegada, aquest any, com cada any, centenars es van reunir a la marxa anual contra les morts en custòdia policial a Gran Bretanya. La majoria dels que estan aquí són membres de la família que diuen que han perdut els seus éssers estimats a mans de la policia. Igual que la família de Sean Riggs, que va morir en 21 Agost 2008. Un músic de 40 anys d'edat, va ser detingut al carrer per quatre oficials i portat a una comissaria propera. He was placed in a metal cage in the yard. 20 minutes later he was dead.

The annual event is now entering its 13-th year and every year the list of those who have died grows longer. Organizers were handing out posters with the names of 3,180 individuals since 1969. Sadly one of the latest to be added to that list was 48-year old Smiley Culture. He died from a single stab wound to the heart. His family were told he stabbed himself while making a cup of tea. His nephew Merlin was at the march.
Standing behind me are the many families who have lost loved ones, they say at the hands of police, they are ready to march on downing street demanding justice.
It’s been 42 years since a police officer has been prosecuted for the death of somebody in custody. That’s despite several verdicts of unlawful killings. The families of Ian Tomlinson, the newspaper vendor who died at the G-20 summit, and Jean Charles De Menezez who was killed by the police on the London underground were also here.
And so was the family of Mark Duggan. The latest man to be shot dead by police in Britain. His killing sparked riots across the country in August.
The sad reality is that these families will be here again next year. Even sadder is that there a new families who will be joining them.
