Support our work: become a Friend of Statewatch from as little as £1/€1 per month.
"The United Families and Friends Campaign (UFFC) is a national coalition of families and friends of those that have died in the custody of police and prison officers as well as those who are killed in immigration detention and secure psychiatric hospitals in the UK.
Assemble 29 October 12Noon at Trafalgar Square for a silent procession along Whitehall followed by a noisy protest at Downing Street.
We have been marching for the past 18 years and campaigning for much longer – join us this year!
Every year since 1999, the UFFC holds its annual remembrance procession from Trafalgar Square to Downing Street to remember loved ones who have died in custody.
The UFFC was set up by the families who had lost loved ones at the hands of the state to challenge the injustice in the system. It began as a network of black families because disproportionate numbers of BME people were dying in police custody. It has now grown to include families of all races that die in custody."
