Three Years, No Justice – Menezes Commemorative Events on 22nd July 2008

Jean Charles de Menezes was shot dead on 22nd July 2005 at Stockwell tube station during a pre-planned police anti-terror operation. Not a single police officer has faced any disciplinary action for the killing. This is despite a jury at the Old Bailey finding the Office of the Commissioner of the Metropolitan police guilty of ‘catastrophic errors’ at the health and safety trial in October last year.

Three years on, his family continue to tirelessly campaigning to find out all the circumstances into how Jean died and for justice and accountability.

Please join the family to mark the 3rd anniversary of his death on the 22nd July 2008 by attending one of the following events:

  • At 9.45am a vigil outside Stockwell tube station to mark the exact moment Jean Charles was killed.
  • At 1.30pm to unveil a sculpture of the Brazilian flag made from flowers at Old Palace Yard, W1, next to Parliament Square. The sculpture will bear with the words ‘Menezes – 3 years No Justice’ written across it. The centre of the sculpture will be made up of 1093 flowers – one flower for every day which has passed since Jean died. Special guests will be announced later this week that will be joining the family to place the final few flowers into the centre of the sculpture on the day.

Old Palace Yard can be found here.

If you can only make one event we encourage people to come to the lunchtime event in parliament.
