INQUEST’s statement of support for the Women’s March on London (21st Jan 2017)
INQUEST sees the daily impact of societal inequality, discrimination and injustice in our work on deaths of women who have died in custody, mental health and immigration detention. Protecting human rights and challenging the impact of racism and discrimination on the treatment of those in contact with the state sits at the heart of INQUEST’s work.
We reject the corrosive and dangerous politics of fear and division and the attempt by any politician to use discrimination as a tool to degrade, demean or scapegoat for political gain. We will be marching in solidarity for equality dignity and respect as the only route to a fair and just society.
‘Your support and assistance in our struggle for truth and justice helped achieve a just verdict, not only for Roger but for the unsung victims, the families and friends of loved ones who have died in custody and for all our endeavours… We view your organisation, your work and dedication with respect and immense admiration. We hope that by working with you, other campaigns and with god’s blessing we can bring about meaningful change.’
– Roger Sylvester Justice Campaign
