Demonstrate over Sean Rigg who died in police custody

Issue No. 2165

Sean Rigg died after being arrested and restrained by four police officers in Brixton, south London, on 21 August 2008

One year later, Sean’s family are still campaigning for justice.

The Sean Rigg Justice and Change campaign has called a demonstration to mark one year since his death.

The protest is also supported by the United Campaign Against Police Violence.

Samantha Rigg-David, Sean’s sister, said, “Friday 21 August 2009 will be a year to the day since Sean died and we are still fighting for answers, answers that make sense.

“We have called for a robust and fair investigation, but still the Independent Police Complaints Commission continue to take the word, side and perspective of the police.”

Demonstrate on Friday of this week, assemble 5.30pm at the junction of Fairmount Road and Brixton Hill, Brixton.
