Time – Friday 1st July, 7pm

We invite you to the sixth meeting of The Equality Movement, ‘Who polices the police?’, in the heart of Brixton. In light of the recent deaths of Smiley Culture, Kingsley Burrell, and all victims of police brutality, we will discuss these attacks on our community, and how we can defend against them.

Chaired by Logic.
Hip-hop artist and co-founder of The People’s Army.

Speakers:

Jody McIntyre.
