Mikey Powell Campaign for Justice

The Friends of Mikey Powell Campaign for Justice was established by the family of Michael Lloyd Powell (known as Mikey), a cousin of the renowned poet and writer, Benjamin Zephaniah, following his death whilst in Police custody.

Mikey was 38 years old and a father of three young children. He had never been in trouble with the authorities and was well known and respected within his community.

Information:

The whole community was outraged and angry that this could happen so suddenly to a law abiding citizen. This was reflected in a packed public meeting held in September 2003, and a march to Thornhill Road police station in November 2003.  Over 500 people attended the protest and hundreds more lined the route.
