speakers include Carole Duggan and others to be announced

Mark Duggan’s family, friends and supporters believe that the inquest jury’s verdict that Mark was “lawfully killed” is terribly wrong. As the family solicitor said: “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 has 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 (figures from inquest.org.uk). 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.

On Saturday 11 January around 1,000 people attended a vigil for Mark outside Tottenham police station. This meeting is our next step: a place to discuss discuss the facts of the case, the person Mark really was – and how you can help the Justice for Mark Duggan campaign.

That vigil is just the beginning of the mountain that we have to climb to get justice for Mark – in unity and solidarity alongside his family and loved ones.

Leaflet handed out at Mark’s vigil

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.
