Press release: Respect candidate backs families’ call for justice

Kate Hudson, Respect candidate for Manchester Central, will join with family members of those killed in police custody, to attend a screening of the award-winning film 'Injustice'. The screening takes place this Friday August 10th at 6pm at the Phil Martin Centre in Moss Side.
The screening takes place on the anniversary of the riots triggered by the shooting by police of Mark Duggan, and is hosted by BARAC (Black Activists rising against the cuts). The film charts the struggles for justice of the families of people who have died in police custody.

Kate Hudson said: ‘Over 1,000 people died in policy custody in England between 1969 and 1999. But no police officer has ever been convicted of any of the deaths. This remarkable film exposes the reality of this deeply shocking figure and calls us to action for justice. Time does not erase the crimes.’

There will be a discussion after the film, including family members of those who have been killed. Please join us at the Phil Martin Centre, 141-143 Princess Road , Moss Side, Manchester M14 4RE. It’s time for justice.

Kate and the Respect campaign team will be taking their message to Manchester Central again on Saturday, meeting at 12 noon at the party rooms at Hilton House, Hilton Street , Manchester M1 1EL .
