The Justice for Sarah Reed group is taking over Twitter feeds for her birthday


Today, June 22, Sarah Reed would have turned 33. Instead, a campaign group is fighting for justice following her death in Holloway prison.

Sarah had been "failed by many", in the words of her mother, with prison officers, lawyers, doctors and social workers failing to adequately address the mental health problems she'd been suffering since the loss of her child in 2003.

Sarah's family were told she strangled herself in her cell, according to Lee Jasper, and there are a lot of questions the Justice 4 Sarah campaign want answered - relating not just to her death but the police brutality she suffered during a 2012 arrest for shoplifting, and repeated failings regarding sexual assault.

The campaign group wants the hashtags #SarahReed, #SayHerName, #BlackLivesMatter, #BlakSox and, significantly, #SarahsLaw, to be tweeted.

Sarah's Law asks for any person suffering ill mental health not to be held in a prison or police cell.
