Douglas White (Carnegie UK Trust), Aled Edwards (Cytun) and Charlotte Waite (Kindness Matters)

Shreds: The story of the Cardiff Five
18.00 – 18.45

Ceri Jackson (BBC Wales), John Actie, Tony Paris,  Kervin Julien (campaigner)

Why 10 months later were five black men rounded up and charged? What unfolded over the next 30 years is a tale so scandalous you’d be forgiven for thinking it was a work of fiction. What is the true cost of the notorious ‘Cardiff Five’ miscarriage of justice? On individuals, society and the street?
