On the 7th September 2003, Michael Lloyd Powell (also known as Mikey) was run over, restrained beaten and CS gassed by Police Officers, from the West Midlands Police Force.
After the abuse Mikey suffered he was declared dead at the Police station. His Family has had to wait for six years to hear the verdict from the Coroner at Mikey's Inquest.
The verdict was 'Positional Asphyxia' due to Police restraints.
Mikey's case is just one of many.
In the film you are about to watch, filmmakers Bill Maloney and Lilly Starr visited Mikey Powell's Remembrance Day, at the Highfields Community Centre in Leicester.
4WARDEVERUK - the organisation that leads the charge against unlawful deaths in Police custody, asked the filmmakers if they would document the day.
Bill Maloney's reply to this request was as follows:
"There has to be a time of coming together for all victims and their families around the world so that we can fight against these outrageous crimes. Not for revenge, but for peace & justice. I'd be honoured to make a film for 4wardeverUK. God bless all victims & survivors".
