Memorial march for Jesse

Actions, protests & rallies
Gadigal Country/Sydney

Sydney Town Hall square
Sydney NSW


On July 2023 Jesse Deacon suffered an acute mental breakdown in his Glebe public housing home. The police forcibly entered his home, and shot and killed him.

This action calls for an end to the senseless killing of mentally ill citizens by the NSW police force. We want to stop police attending as first responders attending mentally incapacitated people in distress and end their killing of community members with impunity.

Organised by Judy (Jesse's mum), Action for Public Housing, Hands Off Glebe, Sydney Socialist Alliance, NSW Greens.
