The vigil was followed by a march to the shop in which Rashan died. The protest later returned to the police station to let them know that we will not rest until justice is served.
Rashan’s father Esa told the vigil ‘I am heartbroken, this has to stop.’
Rashan Charles’s death follows the death just a month ago of Edson Da Costa after he was stopped in his car by the police.
No senior police officer came to speak to the crowd or the family members present on Monday night.
This death cannot go unpunished. We will be protesting again on Saturday at Stoke Newington police station at 2pm.
We appeal to all Londoners who want to see a truly accountable police force that is cleansed of institutional racism to join us in the fight for justice.
Justice for Rashan.
