The riots in London have been going on for about three days now, spreading to other cities in the UK. Wether its opportunistic gangmembers or random bored kids in need to bee seen, feel authority or just happy get another kettle from Argos, or even stealing a plasma television into their (!) Audi it is indeed a bit wierd being in London at the moment, when everything shuts down, you cant buy food and you fall asleep to more police-sirens than usual. However this quote seems adequate (via Catherine).
“When you cut facilities, slash jobs, abuse power, discriminate, drive people into deeper poverty and shoot people dead whilst refusing to provide answers or justice, the people will rise up and express their anger and frustration if you refuse to hear their cries. A riot is the language of the unheard.” – Martin Luther King
