The United Families and Friends Campaign (UFFC) is a coalition of families and friends of those that have died in the custody of police and prison officers as well as those who are killed in immigration detention and secure psychiatric hospitals.
It includes the families of Roger Sylvester, Leon Patterson, Rocky Bennett, Alton Manning, Christopher Alder, Brian Douglas, Joy Gardner, Aseta Simms, Ricky Bishop, Paul Jemmott, Harry Stanley, Glenn Howard, Mikey Powell, Jason McPherson, Lloyd Butler, Azelle Rodney, Sean Rigg, Habib Ullah, Olaseni Lewis, David Emmanuel (aka Smiley Culture), Kingsley Burrell, Demetre Fraser, Mark Duggan and Anthony Grainger to name but a few. Together the UFFC have built a network for collective action to end deaths in custody.
The 14th annual procession of the UFFC was held on Saturday, when over 500 families and friends marched to Downing Street to deliver a petition to the Prime Minister, calling for an independent judicial inquiry into all suspicious deaths in custody and a radical overhaul of the IPCC.
A slideshow with pictures of the procession can be viewed here.
