The Justice for Smiley Culture public meeting took place several hours ago at Brixton Town Hall in London.
British Reggae star Smiley Culture (real name David Emmanuel) who burst on to the music scene in the mid 1980s died on the 15 March during a police raid inside his Surrey home.
According to the Metropolitan Police David stabbed himself to death while making a cup of tea during a police raid. Yes that’s right because the British police make a habit of allowing ‘suspects’ to make CUPS OF TEA WHILE THEY RAID THEIR HOMES!
This is just heartbreaking. Some things will NEVER change in this country. If you thought that deaths in police custody were a thing of the past then think again!
Rest In Peace David Emmanuel aka Smiley Culture.

Watching this public meeting reminds me of the uprisings in Brixton 30 years ago against the police. There was just so much passion, anger and emotion in that room. The people of Brixton will not let this rest.
A march to Scotland Yard will take place on the 16 April.

Well done to everyone who came out to support Smileys family at Brixton town hall.Rose up to Elder Minka who echoed the sentiments of us all. See everyone on the March
There have been so many cases where the police have killed people, and the families have received no justice! I think it’s great to see so many people come out and support the fight to get justice for Smiley Culture!
The woman talking about her son is sooo heart breaking, she is a strong woman, I prey that she gets justice for her son. It makes me feel that that kind of thing can happen to any one of us black people.
My Condolences go out to Smiley Cultures family, the murder of black men and women in this country by the hands of police, HM customs & mental health authoritys must stop. Now the community especially the Black Community need to unite.
The children out there stabbing and killing each other over nothing & area codes they don’t own, this needs to stop, they are doing exactly what the police want them to do by eliminating each other. Jah is not sleeping, people unite, we all need to deal with these issues, Now, Now, Now
