The United Family and Friends Campaign (UFFC) staged a protest march from Trafalgar Square to Downing St today. They are brought together by a common bond of allegedly having had a friend or family member die in police custody. London, UK, 30 Oct 2010.
UFFC is a group who have been brought together by a common bond… They have all lost a friend or family member due to what they claim, was mistreatment by the police whilst in custody. The march from Trafalgar Square to Downing Street was a solemn affair. Approx 100 protesters marched in complete silence with banners fluttering gently in the breeze.
On arrival at Downing Street the group made several heartfelt speeches, detailing what they claim are police cover ups and murder. There were allegations by some, that in one case, the police had turned off CCTV in the cell areas prior to beating one of the family members to death.
