The Ferguson Solidarity Tour featuring US civil rights activist Rev Sekou and justice campaigners from Britain has been extended by a few days to Wednesday 4 February. New meetings added include Glasgow, Edinburgh, Oxford and Leeds.
The tour now includes a meeting at the Houses of Parliament with Diane Abbott MP and Adrienne Kambana, widow of Jimmy Mubenga. It ends in Leeds for an event hosted by the David Oluwale Association. In 1971 two police officers were cleared of David Oluwale’s manslaughter, but imprisoned for assaulting him: the first and last time that police officers in this country have been successfully prosecuted in relation to a death in custody.
