March on the Met: 12 photos from rally for Bibaa Henry and Nicole Smallman
The March on the Met, led by the Women’s Equality Party, was organised to mark the two-year anniversary of the murders of sisters Bibaa Henry and Nicole Smallman.
The March on the Met, led by the Women’s Equality Party (WEP), was organised to mark the two year anniversary of the murders of sisters Bibaa Henry and Nicole Smallman.
They were stabbed to death in Fryent Country Park, on June 6, 2020, following an outdoor birthday party.
Police delays to the investigation into their disappearance saw family and friends mount their own search - with Nicole’s boyfriend discovering the women’s bodies.
Two officers sent to guard the scene later took and shared photographs of the women’s bodies, and referred to them as “dead birds”.
Outrage surrounding the case came as part of a series of scandals for the Met Police, including the abduction, rape and murder of Sarah Everard, by serving armed cop Wayne Couzens, a report into vile racism and misogyny at Charing Cross Police Station, and the strip search of a 15-year-old black girl, known as Child Q.
Speakers at the march, which began at Fryent Country Park in
Brent and ended at Victoria Embankment, on Tuesday, June 7, included activists Dr Shola Mos-Shogbamimu, Ngozi Fulani, Patsy Stevenson, Jamie Klingler, and Game of Thrones actress Nathalie Emmanuel.
LondonWorld has rounded up 12 images from the rally.
