 Request For Protests At  All British Embassies, High Commissions, British Trade Offices and any other British interests globally. 



12noon Friday 30th July 2010.

 

 Ian Tomlinson died on April 1st 2009 after being attacked by a policeman during the G20 protests in London. 



He was walking home from work and had nothing to do with the demonstrations. 



A few short moments later he collapsed and died of his injuries.  



The police immediately attempted a cover-up which fell apart after footage of the death leaked to the media a week later, as well as thousands of other images of police violence against the British public.

Since then, the police, the so-called Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) & the Department of Public Prosecutions (DPP), and other state agencies have been allegedly investigating the death. 



Their conclusion? The killer will not be charged with any offence. 



A limited period of time is set by the British legal system of six months to bring charges to court. The only course of action to take after this period without the backing of the British legal system is to bring a private legal case which would cost the Tomlinson family millions. 



They are an ordinary working family and have no access to the finances needed. 



The lesson? The police internationally are there to enforce the law, not to abide by it. They are happy to kill and cover-up their crimes. 



The British state believes this and all other cases of police killings such as the murder of Jean Charles de Menezes will be forgotten and ignored because the victims are poor. 



We demand justice! 



Everyone to the streets! Never forget Never forgive!
