Event Details

Black history month special event
 
Join the family of Dorothy "Cherry" Groce, for the 30th commemoration of her wrongful shooting by the Metropolitan Police which led to the infamous 1985 Brixton uprisings. We will also reflect on the police violence that led to Cynthia Jarrett's death and the Broadwater Farm uprisings a week after Cherry Groce's shooting.
 
What happened in 1985? Why did the Police shoot an innocent mother in front of her children, the youngest being 8 years old? How did the community defend and rebuild itself after the uprisings?
 
Come and participate in this commemorative event that will discuss the past, present and future of communities fighting for justice and peace in Brixton and Tottenham.
 
This will also be the launch of a new justice campaign for the family of Cherry Groce, please sign their new petition for justice.
