Pauline Campbell NOT arrested at Holloway.

18-01-2008 11:23

Another death at Holloway...
Just two days before the anniversary of her daughters death in Styal Prison in 2003, Pauline Campbell was back at Holloway on Wednesday to demonstrate over yet another self-inflicted death inside its walls.

24 year old Jamie Pearce died on the 10th of December though her death has only just been rerecorded as “self inflicted” from “Unclassified”. There are now officially 8 such deaths recorded in England and Wales in 2007 a 166% rise from the year before. This was the 27th protest that Pauline has staged since her campaign began in 2004.

The group of protesters included two ex-prisoners (male); two grieving mothers whose loved ones had died in the 'care' of prisons in England; the mother of a teenager currently incarcerated in HMP Holloway; and a friend of the late Harry Stanley, who was shot dead by police in 1999.
