Friday 29th July, Parliament Square and Westminster Cathedral

The family of the young Brazilian, Jean Charles de Menezes, who was shot and killed by the police at Stockwell station on 22 July, is calling upon the people of London to join them this Friday in remembering Jean Charles.

Newham Monitoring Project is playing a central role in helping to set up the Jean Charles de Menezes Family Campaign and it is vital that as many independent Newham activists as possible get along to the vigil and inter-faith memorial service to show their solidarity.

The vigil will be at Parliament Square from 5.30pm - bring Brazilian and peace flags. The memorial service is 7pm at Westminster Cathedral, 42 Francis Street, London SW1P 1QW. Tube: Victoria/St James' Park. Buses: 11, 24, 148, 507, 211.

The service will include readings from friends and family of Jean and includes a live link to Jean Charles' funeral in Brazil. There will also be readings from Bianca Jagger, Gareth Peirce and Professor Tariq Ramadan.
