ANNOUNCEMENT: March 4 Justice 4 Demetre Fraser is postponed.

Demetre Fraser aka T.Dot (R.I.P.)

It is with great sadness that we are forced to announce that the March for Justice for Demetre Fraser, scheduled to take place on Saturday, August 13th has been postponed.
We want to express our sincere gratitude and thank everyone who has helped to promote the march in support of Demetre’s family’s quest for justice.
In the current climate, we cannot guarantee the public safety of those who would attend the march and as a result, we have decided that we have no option other than to postpone it.
This was a difficult decision to make and understandably it is particularly hard for Demetre’s mother, Josette Fraser.  Our thoughts are with the Fraser family at this time.
We would like you all to continue supporting the Fraser family and the campaign and promoting the FaceBook campaign page.  
Once again, we would like to extend our sincere gratitude to all of you for your continued support. A new date for the march will be announced as soon as possible.
No Justice No Peace!

Demetre Fraser : Activist march for justice

If you know where your son is right now you're very lucky. Consider the plight of Josie Fraser. Watch a mothers emotional appeal for your support here. As a people we must regain our tradition of marching and protest. Please read this and take action in support.
Demetre Fraser aka T.Dot was 21 years of age from London Peckham. He died after being visited by the West Midlands Police Force on the 31st May 2011. He was staying with a friend from Birmingham at the time.
The official version of events is that he committed suicide by jumping off an 11th floor balcony of a highrise tower block in Druids Heath Birmingham.
That version of events is heavily disputed and undermined by the fact that neighbours heard a violent struggle and evidence of such on the 11th and 8th floors. The case in now being investigated by the IPCC.
Demetre’s death follows on from the cases of Kingsley Burrell in Birmingham and Smiley Culture in London.
We are demanding a public inquiry into all suspicious deaths in custody and the immediate suspension of all the police officers involved pending investigation.
Please bring your banners , placards, whistles, vuvezaelas and drums. If you can bring a sound system then bring it. We intend to demonstrate that we will not simply sit idly and be a silent witness to injustice.
We have virtually no resources to organise this demonstration so we are depending on the only real resource we have and that is you. Through social networking we can make this march a huge success but we need you're support to do that. If you can help in any way and want to offer your personal support contact me lee-jasper@live.com . We thank you in advance
