Justice for Mark Duggan
We are holding this peaceful vigil as a mark of love and respect Mark Duggan, the Tottenham dad of six who was shot and killed on 4 August 2011. We also want to show that the fight for justice for Mark will carry on.
Mark’s family, friends and supporters believe that the jury got its verdict of “lawful killing” terribly wrong. As Marcia Willis Stewart, solicitor for the family, said: “This is a perverse judgement. The jury found that he had no gun in his hand – and yet he was gunned down. For us that is an unlawful killing.”
The inquest also raised many troubling questions about the true circumstances of Mark’s death. We want answers to those questions. We will fight on to find out who was responsible for Mark’s death and hold them to account. We are calling on everyone to support us in this struggle.
Since 1990, some 1,476 people have died in police custody or following police contact, yet not one police officer has been convicted. In Tottenham the family and friends of Cynthia Jarrett, Joy Gardner and Roger Sylvester still have no justice.
