Twin film screenings highlight campaigns for justice over police deaths

New Beacon Books in Stroud Green will be showing two films on the subject of police brutality this month

Haringey residents are being invited to screenings of two important films by director Ken Fero (Migrant Media) on the struggles for justice by the families of people that have died at the hands of police in Britain.

New Beacon Books in Stroud Green Road will be showing Injustice on Thursday, 6th June, and Ultraviolence on Thursday, 13th June.

Together the films reveal that since 1969 there have been around 2,000 deaths in police custody in Britain. 

Even after the many recent damning reports exposing the British police’s malpractice, racism and misogyny, and despite the organised campaigns from families, justice is denied and the deaths continue. The films explore how we can get justice, what must change, and why the system fails to deliver justice.

Following the screening of Injustice there will be a Q&A with Ken Fero and Victor Sylvester, cousin of Roger Sylvester who was killed 25 years ago. After the Ultraviolence screening there will be a Q&A with Ken Fero and Samantha Patterson, sister of Jason McPherson.

Entry is £5 on the door.
