The August “riots” were portrayed by the media and politicians as the actions of “greedy feral youth” within a “criminal underclass”. Most of these politically loaded explanations were presented before what had happened was even known.

Using hard research and the voices of participants, this event will provide an analysis of the “riots” of August, considering what (actually) happened, who was involved and how they did it. It will also critique the representation of the events in the media and mainstream politics.
