Miscarriage of justice? 1986 attempted Murder of St Pauls leader Kuomba Balogun by Valentine Walker?
Kuomba Balogun v. Valentine Walker 1986 attempted murder/assault trial - Steve Norman on Balogun 'Where Marvin Is now a result of what his father did for the establishment'

I hope the bastard dies... 1986 - National newspaper headlines from St Pauls Community Association spokesman Kuomba Balogun remarks, in response to Operation Delivery commander Malcolm Popperwell having a suspected heart attack - This was the week in September 1986 when Bristol was beginning to feel the backlash from Operation Delivery, in which 600 men from the Avon and Somerset police force had gone into St Paulâs to make a series of arrests for drug offences. This had led to an outbreak of stone throwing, cars set on fire, a smash and grad raid on a local store and a mugging. To make matters worse the Assistant Chief Constable Malcolm Popperwell was taken off to hospital after a suspected heart attack. How Thatcher destroyed Britain and all the upheavals of the time. Interview with Kuomba Balogun, anti Apartheid campaigner in the UK in the 1980s: racism in the police and how he got in all the newspapers; Said of Chief Suerintendent Malcolm Popperwell who was alleged to have had a heart attack I hope the bastard dies and is reported in the national press. Community Worker Cleared, Guardian story; Balogunâs account of machete attack by present mayors father Valentine Walker; crack cocaine introduced into St Pauls community; CIA and drug dealing; Steve Norman on how Valentine Walker was a police informer; Balogun on his past in UK and his present life in Ghana.
Tom Turvey, the police authority chairman, was asked to stand down after objecting to a Labour party statement about the police raid. He said that there were differences between his view of the events in St Paulâs and those contained in the statement which demanded a full, independent public inquiry into Operation Delivery. There were angry scenes at a Police Liaison Committee over the fact that the police did not consult community leaders before the raid and that it had been provocative and heavy handed. And Avon County councillor Roger Berry described the extent and duration of the raid as 'totally unacceptable'
It was an unhappy day for the police who were, this very week, staging a parade on College Green to celebrate 150 years of city policing. Some 45 retired police officers joined 140 police officers for the event which was attended by Bristolâs Lord Mayor, Joan Jones and the Lord Lieutenant of Avon, Sir John Wills. Malcolm Popperwell did in fact survive another thirty four years until he passed away in January 2020 at the ripe old age of 86.
'Where Marvin Rees Is Now Is A Result Of What His Dad [Valentine Walker] Did For The Establishment' Steve Norman. Tributes paid to Steve Norman, Bristols well-known, relentless and loudest activist - âSteve always fought for the underdog, the poor, the homeless and the working class â a true hero and inspiration to so many Writing on the Bristolian website, Fred Hampton said Mr Norman was one of the âgreat community activists in Bristolâ. âAnd on top of all this he did day-to-day case work from tribunals to legal advice to helping the elderly with PPI claims,â he said. He was a go to man for many who have no voice. Steve did all of this work for free, because he cared and because he wouldn't take the cruelties of this world lying down. The 'Avon mouth' would never be silent and would never be bought off. In this world of so-called professional activism and paid social justice consultants, of politicians with no principals, of neo-liberal PR bullsh**, of corruption and nepotism and the rich getting richer, Steve Norman stuck two fingers up and did something about it. A shining example of what we need and a lesson to us all,â he added...
