Ian Bone: MILLWALL GAME LEAFLETTED OVER TOMLINSON DEATH
Chris Knight and the family of Sean Rigg - who died in police custody in Brixton last year - leafletted Millwall’s home game on Saturday over the police murder of Millwall fan Ian Tomlinson. This took some bottle which is conspicuously absent in some of our armchair bound comrades. Sean’s sister and brother said they’d had a couple of racist comments but the overwhelming response was very positive with the leaflets flying out to the sound of Chris Knight in the background bellowing ‘ Don’t let the police bastards get away with murder’. Bob Crow came out of the ground and took the banner inside advertising the march on May23rd against police violence.Related, at Transpontine: The G20 Brockley connection; Local movements.
