I'm attending the Stephen Lawrence Murder Trial at the Old Bailey

Stephen Lawrence R.I.P.
Thursday 17th November at 09:30am 

Jury swearing in Monday 14th November.  Trial is scheduled to start sometime later this week. We will advise as soon as we know. Trial is set to last 6 weeks.

This is for all those who reject racism and uphold the principle of justice for all British citizens regardless of their race or faith. Those who love justice and hate racism. I would ask that we encourage people to attend the trial and let the country know that we have not forgotten Stephen or indeed all the other victims of racist murders.
As the economic crisis worsens so will racism. Stephen died during the last recession in the early 1990s, in the 1980s we had civil disturbances and concerning the arrests that followed we had a huge number of miscarriage of justice cases all over the country. So we need to ensure that we are ready to support justice and reject racism.
Now advised that Court 16 seats only 30 people. In that case,  I may think about calling a number of demonstrations of solidarity and support for the Lawrence family  outside the court . The defendants families will no doubt be there and they and the Lawrence's will be given seats and if there are any left they will be given to the public. Any other ideas or proposals will be welcomed.
