We cannot respond to acts of illegality with other acts of illegality. This is the advice from Youth activist and law student Kareem Marcelle. Marcelle has been advocating for justice in the deaths of three men at the hands of police on the weekend.


Addressing the ongoing protests in Beetham, Port of Spain and Morvant regarding the deaths, Marcelle suggested that any acts of illegality performed in the name of the men should be condemned.

Speaking with News Power Now, Marcelle confirmed that the families of two of the men killed by police over the weekend are meeting with attorneys today in their bid for justice. Marcelle explained that the family is pursuing what he described
as “actual justice”
