The 16th Annual United Families and Friends Campaign memorial march saw a noticeably larger crowd than last year attend the commemorative procession down from Trafalgar Square to outside 10 Downing Street.

Families and friends of some of the thousands of people killed in police custody, prison, psychiatric units and asylum and immigration centres gathered alongside supporters, students, activists, trade union representatives and concerned members of the public to voice their anger, sadness and frustration with the lack of justice received by the families of those murdered by the state.

Many wearing black, marchers carried banners bearing the names of individuals killed by the state, alongside those of various supportive campaigns. Slowly walking the short route to arrive outside the Prime Minister’s residence, the march, led by family members, gathered in the sun to listen to the stories of those whose relatives and friends have been brutally taken away from them by the state.

Marcia Rigg, who spoke about the murder of her brother Sean in Brixton police station in 2008, described the the 2012 inquest into Sean’s death which culminated in a ‘critical narrative verdict’ in in which the jury stated that the police had ‘more than minimally contributed’ to Sean’s death.

Marcia talked about the officers involved in the case and how one of them had tried to resign to escape accountability for Sean’s death.
