Report on 10th Annual United Families & Friends Remembrance procession

26-10-2008 11:49

On Saturday 25th October 2008, the tenth annual United Families and
Friends Remembrance procession took place, with several hundred people in
attendance, including many family members of those who have died in
suspicious circumstances in police custody, prison and 'secure' mental
health facilities.

The march made its way in silence down Whitehall to Downing Street where,

members were allowed to come forward and fix them to the gates in front of
Downing St, where police had agreed they would be allowed to stay until
the end of the protest.
