Press release 20/08/2012
Following the violent arrest of an unknown man at Windrush Square yesterday afternoon, concerned citizens of Brixton are calling to hold the police officers accountable.
In particular, we are looking for additional video evidence and eyewitness reports which could document how the victim has been stamped in his face by a police officer. Moreover, we are looking for help to identify the victim. Any evidence should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We have video evidence of the incident, however, for the time being we will wait with the release in order to safeguard the privacy of the victim.
Tomorrow, the Sean Rigg Memorial event will take place. We will take part in the event in order to highlight that Sean ́s case is not an isolated issue. Following the event, we will initiate a peaceful march towards Brixton Police Station in order to draw further attention to police violence in our community and hand in our complaint about the latest incident of police violence in Brixton.
We would like to invite you all to report on this occasion. With kind regards,
Brixton Police Monitor
