Dear IRR News subscriber,
In other news from across the UK, the jury at the inquest into the death of Mark Duggan has been told to answer five questions to establish whether he was killed lawfully or unlawfully. Sean Rigg’s family has welcomed a decision by the IPCC to reopen its investigation into his death. Mr Rigg died in 2008 in Brixton police station and last year an inquest jury recorded a highly critical narrative verdict. And the High Court has ruled that care must be provided for disabled children in Traveller families if they move around the country, following a case where Worcestershire Council had declined to fund nursery services for a boy with Down’s Syndrome.
Finally, if you are looking for a last minute Christmas present, the IRR is offering for £10 (plus P&P) Catching History on the Wing, a collection of A. Sivanandan’s writings over the last forty years, as well as one of two back issues of Race & Class for free.
