Dear IRR News subscriber,
Welcome to the new look weekly email and new IRR website which we hope you like.
Some of you might have missed some articles which we have published over the last few weeks, two pieces by the IRR’s Frances Webber, Xenophobia drives government assault on European court and Algerian deportees win important secrecy ruling; John Grayson, a regular contributor has been busy, in one article he analyses the contradictions in electoral racism in the UK and in another how asylum seekers have been made the guinea pigs for all kinds of brutal policies that are now beginning to be applied more widely in the UK.
In the headlines this week, the family of Mark Duggan, who was shot dead by police in Tottenham in August 2011, discovered that a full inquest into his death may never be held and a police officer in Slough has been removed from ‘normal duties’ following the death of Philmore Mills, who died after being restrained at Wexham Park Hospital in December 2011.
Two important events will also be taking place, tonight campaigners will discuss ‘What next after Dale Farm’ and on Sunday 1 April, the family and friends of Christopher Alder, who died in police custody will gather for a vigil in Hull to mark the fourteen years since his death.
Finally, please do let us know what you think of the new look or if you experience any problems accessing articles.
