Hundreds of friends and relatives of people who died in prison or police custody in the UK have held a rally and remembrance procession through central London, calling for justice for their loved ones.
The rally, which is organized by the United Families & Friends Campaign, has taken place every year in London since 1999. The group is made up of bereaved families and others affected by deaths at the hands of United Kingdom police, in prisons, in immigration systems, and psychiatric custody.
Join us for this years annual remembrance procession which takes place in Central London on Saturday 30 October 2021.
The United Families and Friends Campaign (UFFC) mission is to work collaboratively as a network of independent campaigns to address common issues and concerns related to deaths and abuse in police, penal, mental health and immigration detention; and to organise events and activities that promote awareness and support for affected families across the UK.

This event took place on 10 September 2021 marking the 18th anniversary of the death of Mikey Powell in West Midlands police custody, and celebrated 6 years of the National Mikey Powell Memorial Family Fund developed by his cousin, Tippa Naphtali, in September 2015.
The event opened with an appreciation to Mikey’s mother, Clarissa Powell, who attended with many members of her extended family. A short tribute film to Mikey’s legacy was released shortly before the event.See it here >
