Violent Riots in the UK

Since four days riots, burning and looting in London and now other cities such as Manchester and Birmingham have put England in a state of emergency.

A commuter from East Dulwich described a typical scene: "I looked out of the window and there was a bunch of lads who were pushing a big industrial bin towards our bus. It crashed into the side and the window shattered. There were a few people crying. The driver didn't want to open the doors but a few people forced them open so they could get out." He described getting out of the bus and seeing another bus on fire, as well as several people wearing motorbike helmets and ski masks who were attacking. ”

We would like to pick up the issue of civil violence in society and recommend you to watch the classic “Clockwork Orange” by Stanley Kubrick from 1971. Further more, please watch Matthieu Kassovitz’ award-winning movie “La Haine”.
