The Mark Duggan Inquest
On 4 August 2011 Mark Duggan was a passenger in a minicab in Ferry Lane, Tottenham, when it was stopped by Metropolitan Police officers. He got out of the minicab and was then fatally shot. His death is seen as having led to the riots which broke out in the following days and which spread to other areas of London and to other cities.
Freedom Press is a longstanding anarchist publisher based in Whitechapel, East London. Founded in 1886 it offered a much needed outlet for radical ideas and a meeting place for the anarchist thinkers of the day, and seeks to continue that tradition today along with promoting and supporting current social and political struggles. They are the largest anarchist publishing house in the nation and the oldest of its kind in the English speaking world.

The results of this work are used far beyond the pages of the magazine and their other publications.
