No Justice for Jean?

Our Union rightly expresses the concerns of our members about gun and knife crime in our communities.

We need to be equally concerned when the guns are in the hands of people in uniform - as in the case of Jean Charles de Menezes, for whose death no one will now be held to account.

If you have not already done so please sign the online petition in support of the permanent memorial at Stockwell tube station.

The "Independent" Police Complaints Commission may have decided not to take account of the criticisms and conclusions of the Coroner about the failings by the police four years ago - but local people and trade unionists can at the least ensure that this murder is never forgotten.
