If we take on a personal commitment to the truth, we could make Philadelphia the last American city that has to mark the day it destroyed a Black community.
Police Brutality & Killings
Celia Stubbs gave evidence to the Undercover Policing Inquiry on Thursday. London police killed her partner, Blair Peach, during a protest in Southall, west London, in April 1979. He was 33 when they killed him.
4WardEverUK’s Tippa Naphtali said; “This is a powerful and comprehensive piece on custody deaths/killings and the National Memorial Family Fund. We are very grateful to Emma Youle (HuffPost UK) and the families that participated.”
A former police officer has been found guilty of murdering George Floyd. Many are heralding the ruling as a historic step towards racial justice. But in Australia, one family are still screaming out for accountability.
The conviction of a US police officer for murdering George Floyd has reignited calls to tackle racial injustice in British law enforcement, with campaigners calling for an end to a “culture of impunity”.
The role of the police in western society is beginning to be understood and challenged in ways that were inconceivable only a decade ago. The belief in ‘law and order’ and infallibility of the police is now seriously questioned.
On March 2, a 35-year-old Aboriginal man died at the Longbay Correctional Centre prison hospital in Sydney. Three days later, a 44-year-old Indigenous woman died at Silverwater Correctional Facility.
Celia Stubbs, whose partner Blair Peach was killed by police 42 years ago, hopes her appearance at the Undercover Policing Inquiry will help her discover why she was spied on for decades.
