    Public meeting & conference

    Friends Meeting House
    Euston Road
    London NW1. Tube: Euston

    Jean Charles de Menezes was killed by armed police inside Stockwell Tube
    station on 22 July. His execution brought worldwide attention to a shoot
    to kill policy that the Prime Minster and the Metropolitan Police
    Commissioner say is here to stay. We say *’NO SHOOT TO KILL’* and demand
    an end to this brutal policy. Jean Charles was not the first victim of
    police shootings – Derek Bennett, Azelle Rodney, Harry Stanley and James
    Ashley are just some of the other people that have been shot dead on the
    streets of Britain. Their families continue to fight for justice. If you
    want to support these families. If you want to see those responsible for
    these killings prosecuted. If you want to defend human rights in the UK
    then attend this meeting and the events that will follow.

    The so called ‘War on Terror’ is being used as an excuse for increasing
    militarisation of the police and increased powers that are already
    leading to miscarriages of justice. If we do not take a stand on this
    issue now then others will suffer. Support and join the *’NO SHOOT TO
    KILL’* campaign before it is too late.
