Justice for Jean Charles de Menezes



The local UNISON branch of which I am a member, in Lambeth, South London, was one of many local community organisations appalled at the killing of Jean Charles de Menezes on 22 July last year. The news that no one will face prosecution over this killing has been very badly received in our local union office – and will be badly received by our members locally.


Anyone who can’t get or isn’t going to the Labour Representation Committee meeting on Saturday (see
www.l-r-c.org.uk) may want to attend this important meeting:
