Riot From Wrong

One thing I learned from Riot From Wrong is that 19 young people can get closer to the truth than 90% of working journalists’. Everyone in the UK who has ever expressed an opinion on the riots (namely everyone) needs to see this as soon as possible.

Mark Duggan, a 29-year-old Tottenham resident, was shot and killed by police in Tottenham, North London, England, on 4 August 2011. The Metropolitan Police stated that officers were attempting to arrest Duggan on suspicion of planning an attack, and that he was in possession of a handgun. Duggan died from a gunshot wound to the chest. The death of Duggan – a mixed race male – resulted in public protest in Tottenham over the circumstances of his killing, fueled in part by poverty and racial tension. The protests led to conflict with police, escalating into a riot in Tottenham.[1] These events are widely seen as proximate causes for the 2011 England riots.On the 4th of August 2011 – in the face of the devastation and destruction, surrounded by negativity and misconception,19 passionate young people from across London came together to take positive action.

The critically acclaimed, eye opening documentary RIOT FROM WRONG is a result of that positive action.
