Perfect Storm - The England Riots Documentary
Report Abuse/Infringement 3 Seeds 0 Leechers1.65 GB
This mini-documentary film looks at the initial causes and wider context surrounding the recent England riots. Politicians refuse to acknowledge their role in creating a deeply unfair and failing society, a perfect storm of police brutality, city poverty and austerity measures, that will only get worse unless the root problem is addressed.
Did you know for the rioters to be on par with the looting by the financial bailouts, corporate tax avoiders and Libyan invasion, they would have to repeat the same level of damage……4,320 times?

This ties in with a recent book by Owen Jones called CHAVS: the demonization of the working class."
It's a new book and very good for this reason: the parallels between Britain and the US on every point discussed is startling. I read the whole text and could identify with each element in the US even though all the societal references are to Britain.
Adam Curtis also has some material on the riots from the Thatcher days-- Thatcher/Reagan get a lot of references in this.
here is a ref. to the book:

The documentary is an an important political statement even if you do not favor confrontational action. It's more than pics of burning cars. The creator shows how the situation developed.
