Allow creation of a permanent memorial plaque in memory of Ian Tomlinson

      London, United Kingdom

Ian Tomlinson was a newspaper seller who worked in the City of London and was caught up in the heavy handed policing of protests against the G20 summit in London in 2009. As a bystander, he tried to leave the area and in the course of doing so, died after an assault by a Metropolitan Police officer. This officer now faces trial for manslaughter. His family want a permanent memorial plaque at the spot where he died, so that his death is not forgotten.

      The man who beat up and consequently killed this man has no remorse in his heart, and the cops and the media have been laughing in the faces of those shedding tears for the death of an innocent and unarmed human being. This is not tolerable under any standards, regardless of the circumstances or trial outcome, a human life is a human life, and it must be given the respect and understanding for the mourning family it deserves.

      A video clearly shows police brutality and the very definition of manslaughter yet the one responsible walks free.
