Friday 30th July-A Day Of Solidarity With The Family Of Ian Tomlinson.
Friday is gearing up to be an interesting day if promises of pickets and protests are anything to go by.
Apart from the main London event, call outs have come from Edinburgh, Newcastle, Bristol and even San Francisco.
Our thoughts will firmly be on the family and a growing commitment to not let this miscarriage of justice be forgotten or brushed under the carpet.
Justice for Ian Tomlinson campaign
On April 1st 2009 PC Simon Harwood randomly attacked and killed a member of the public during the G20 protests. The victim, Ian Tomlinson, was not a demonstrator but a local resident on his way home form work as a newspaper vender to watch a football match. He was struck by Harwood and thrown to the floor resulting in his death.
Tomlinson’s killer has been protected from prosecution by unreliable medical testimony and policing and judicial systems that clamour to protect their own.
-The prosecution of PC Harwood
-The resignation of Keir Stramer, Director of Public Prosecutions
-The striking off of Dr Freddy Patel from the medical list
-An overhaul of the IPCC and a fully independent public inquiry
-More accountable policing and changes to the policing of protests, starting with the dissolution of the Mets Tactical Support Group
-A public apology and justice for Ian Tomlinson, his family, his friends and his supporters
