Justice for Julian Webster - protest this Friday, 21 May

Issue No. 2202

The family and friends of Julian Webster from Birmingham want to know the truth about his death. Julian was a 24 year old, much loved and respected young black man.

On Friday 10 April 2009 he visited the Pitcher and Piano bar at Deansgate Lock in Manchester.

At the end of the night he was one of a group who left the bar when staff called time. Julian later tried to return to retrieve a lost mobile phone but was refused entry and police were called. 

When officers arrived at the scene they found him being restrained by two doormen and seconds later he slumped to the floor.

Many attempts to resuscitate him by the police and paramedics were unsuccessful.

The Crown Prosecution Service has not prosecuted anyone for Julian’s death. Now his family and supporters are calling a protest in order to seek justice.

Please support this protest: Friday 21 May, 11am, Crown Prosecution Service, Sunlight House, Quay Street, Manchester M3 3LU.
