Peguy Kato, whose son Champion Ganda died after he and a friend were attacked in May 2013, plans to walk from Forest Gate to Stratford, along Romford Road, with around 150 protesters.

She said: “It’s so important to do this.

“Someone isn’t doing their job properly, either the police or the government.

“We need to do something.”

Peguy, who lives in Harold Hill, added: “I’ve got six boys, and I can’t sleep when they’re out.

“If my 18-year-old is at a party, I call him all the time to make sure he’s safe.”

Anyone who wants to join the march should meet at Forest Gate train station at 1pm on Saturday, May 27.
