A PEACEFUL protest took place yesterday afternoon following the death of 24-year-old Chris Kaba.
Huge crowds gathered outside Brighton Police Station on John Street as part of the call to action, and further protests took place in London and elsewhere across the country.
It comes amid the national outpouring of grief and anger after Mr Kaba, who was to become a father, was fatally shot by a Met police officer in south London on September 5.
The Independent Office for Police Conduct (IOPC) has since confirmed that he was unarmed.
The IOPC has launched a murder investigation into Mr Kaba’s death and the officer who fired the fatal shot has been suspended by the Met.
The Justice for Chris Kaba campaign called for a national day of action last week, sparking several local protests.
The Brighton protest was organized by the group Stand Up to Racism with the blessing of Mr Kaba’s family.
A large crowd gathered and speakers took turns delivering messages of support and moving speeches.
The protesters chanted “no justice no peace” and held up signs calling for justice for Mr Kaba and declaring Black Lives Matter.
Passing cars honked their horns in solidarity, and passers-by joined the crowd to hear the loudspeakers.
