Death in Custody in Ireland (Part II) / London Protest TODAY 28.10.

27-10-2006 23:56

Members of the Wheelock family (Martin & kevin, imc éire)
22 deaths in Garda custody since 1997 are reported in the Republic of Ireland. 4 people died alone in Store Street Station since 2001, a Dublin inner city Police Station with specially designed 'suicide proof' cells.

Terence Wheelock was one of the latter. His death and how the Gardaí treated the incident and also the bereaved family thereafter triggered an ongoing and expanding family campaign.

In the UK, official figures amount to 493 deaths in police custody since 1996. In all of these cases, no officer EVER had to face a court. Today, families and friends of the victims march in London.

27-10-2006 11:27

Latest campaign to demonise Islam and intimidate the Muslim Community

27-10-2006 09:43

Demonising Islam
“The public furore ignited in response to the reported comments made by Sheik Taj Al-Din Al-Hilali has little to do with the question of crime or culpability. What is clear is that a consistently negative view of Islam and Muslims is being generated in this country with the aim of demonising Islam and silencing the Muslim community.”
