Between 1969 and 1999 over one thousand people died in police custody in England. Not one police officer has ever been convicted for any of these deaths. The film INJUSTICE depicts how Brian Douglas, Joy Gardner, Shiji Lapite and Ibrahima Sey met violent deaths at the hands of the police and documents a five year period when their families came together to fight for the truth.

Many other deaths and abuses have occurred in police, prison and mental health institutions in the UK, and this documentary examines many of the key issues from the perspective of the affected families.

  1. It is an absolute disgrace that these human rights abuses are carried out in a so-called liberal democracy. The government should hang their head in shame but moreover take action to put a stop to this NOW!
