The Duggan family are asking the community to peacefully attend a Vigil at Tottenham police station.
We are still struggling to understand the inquest verdict finding that Mark was lawfully killed when he was shot dead by police on 4 August 2011, despite the same jury deciding Mark was unarmed at the time of the shooting.
As Marcia Willis Stewart, solicitor for the family, said: “On 4 August 2011 an unarmed man was shot dead in Tottenham. What we have seen …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.”
But we have not given up the fight for justice.
As Mark’s mom, Pamela said: “Im going to fight as long as I live.. He has six children there crying, his brother is devastated.”
Mark’s Aunt, Carole Duggan added: “The majority of people in this country know that Mark Duggan was executed. He was executed and we still believe that. We are going to fight until we have no breath in our body for justice, for Mark, for his children, for all those who have died in custody – for as long as it takes.”
His brother Sean Hall said: “We came for justice today. We don’t feel that we are leaving with justice – we feel we’re leaving with a grave injustice. We still want justice, and we will find out where we go from here.”
Some good articles on the inquest verdict.
