Innocent Brazilian Jean Charles de Menezes was shot dead on 22nd July 2005 at Stockwell tube station as the result of a disastrous police anti-terror operation.

Two years after his shooting:

• No police officer involved in his death has faced criminal proceedings

• The inquest into his death remains adjourned

• The Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) report into the police operation on the day of his death remains secret

• The IPCC report into Sir Ian Blair also remains unpublished

• The family and public still have no answers about the use of Operation Kratos and the police shoot-to-kill policy.

Join the Menezes family on the second anniversary of his shooting to hear
about their continuing struggle for justice.

Verint handled the cctv on both 7/7 and 22/7 which has apparently failed on both occasions
Metronet and its outsources are shown to have absolutely failed

Thanks for that info on Verint. When I first heard about the CCTV 'not working', days after a 'terrorist incident' on the underground, I knew straight away it was a big lie. I was on the trains and Tube yesterday, listening to an announcement that "CCTV is in operation at this station, for your security" Total bollocks. I think of Jean Charles every time I hear that crap.

Anyone who's seen/read 'V for Vendetta' will remember the cameras and loudspeakers with 'For Your Protection' underneath each one. I saw the same sign under the cameras in Rugby. And that film was supposed to be a post-apocaltyptic vision!

En manos de hombres pecadores...en los brazos de Dios
A Senryu Sequence

A Brazilian,
with seven holes in his head,
knows that looks can kill.

Jean Charles de Menezes,
our Josef K for the day,
he runs while we prey.

Put down like a dog,
we watch, face at the window,
his trial and our guilt.

A town black with tears,
Gonzaga is not London
but it bleeds the same.

Fear is a weapon
with a blade for a handle,
his wounds are our own.
