Carol Duggan to speak at TUSC event in London
Hackney and Islington TUSC film showing: Riot from Wrong
Film screening and panel debate with guests including Carol Duggan, aunt of Mark Duggan
Just over two years ago many parts of London exploded in anger following the Killing of Mark Duggan by the police. This was followed with similar eruptions in many cities up and down the country. Currently there is an inquest taking place into the circumstances of Mark Duggan's death.
The Trade Unionist and Socialist Coalition is presenting this film as part of its campaign to challenge the three main political parties who all advocate policies which make the poor pay for an economic crisis not of their making. We believe this was a primary cause of the riots.
"The best documentary on the August riots bar none." Adrian Dunbar, actor and director.
