London, UK. October 9th 2018. People at the rally outside the New Atlas Cafe Restaurant where a young black man was attacked by police who used obviously unnecessary force when arresting him on suspicion of having been involved in a knife attack. He was assaulted by six officers, and was viciously kicked while officers struggled to handcuff him, andwhen he was well under control and held on the ground he was sprayed in the face with CS gas. 23 year old Kamar Hewitt had been seen smoking cannabis by the police and was detained for questioning about the knife attack, but later eliminated from the investigation. Speakers at the event, organised by North West London Stand Up To Racism, condemned the police for the gratuitous use of violence and the racist attitudes that underlies picking on this and other young black men which has led to the deaths of Rashan Charles and Edson da Costa and many others. They called for the community - black and white - to unite to fight racism and for a truly accountable police force cleansed of institutional racism. Peter Marshall/Alamy Live News
