Justice 4 Dea-John Reid National March

“We call upon everyone in Birmingham and across the country to join the family of 14-year-old black school boy Dea-John Reid murdered in Kingstanding, Birmingham.”

Saturday 9th July 2022
1pm – 4pm
Twickenham Park, College road,
Kingstanding, Birmingham, B44 0AJ

The Campaign and actions:

RACE RELATIONS & CIVIL RIGHTS ACT:
The group are petitioning for a specific Race Relations & Civil Rights Act that can specifically address racial discrimination in addition to civil and human rights abuses.
ETHNICALLY BALANCED JURIES:
Clearly, there needs to be reform when impanelling Juries for cases of this nature particularly when racial discrimination is a clear and undeniable issue. As such this petition calls for the UK Government to introduce legislation to reinstate peremptory jury challenges in cases of this nature in order to ensure a balanced and meaningful decision-making body which a Jury should be and to bring an end to all-white Jurys.
It was agreed that we would support this march at our Branch Executive meeting on Tuesday 14th June 2022.
