13 10 02 ComplainThis is the leaflet I found among the papers of Melissa Laird – after she got deported so that her son can by adopted  – thanks to the criminal activities of Barnet Council.

Meanwhile I received this email: “One year on from my husband’s avoidable death, thanks to you and others I realise how hopeless it is to follow the prescribed channels of complaint. Every path leads nowhere.

The manipulators hold all the cards. They have the money, publicity, media control and legal access denied to all complainants. Those who get noticed are quickly recruited into their ranks in order to fool the public into thinking they’re listening and changes are imminent. They’re not.

I think it’s possible to turn up the volume if we unite all the groups and protest in one voice. Individuals seldom make an impact. I met Caul Grant of Campaign for Truth and Justice at Speakers corner. He stays within the law. I joined them on the last 2 Empowerment Mondays outside the RCJ when they stopped the traffic for 10 minutes at a time by forming a moving chain across Fleet Street. The disruption was effective, it got us noticed. Passers by were shocked to hear the stories of protestors.

Michael Mansfied, currently representing Mark Duggan‘s family listened, so did Keith Vaz MP, currently chairman of Home Affairs Committee, a Parliamentary committee that scrutinises the work of the Home Office and a strong advocate of Human Rights. Given that Cameron has vowed to limit access to the European Court we cannot afford to be complacent.”

Caul responds:

“They can and will continue to ignore our complaints or pass us from pillar to post in full knowledge that we will get nowhere, however, they cannot ignore indefinitely our direct actions of protest, so far, as Pam points out, we have had a huge impact but we cannot standby and leave this mammoth task to a handful of victims, we urgently need to come together as one in a very visible and unavoidable group.

The momentum has started, please, for all our sakes, come out and make a commitment to Empowerment Mondays and give ourselves a real opportunity of seeing justice in our lifetime.”
