THE SWAMP 81 RIOT MIX
In recent weeks, unrest hit the streets of the UK following the death of Mark Duggan. The 29 year old was shot by police on the 4th of August 2011. A peaceful vigil was held outside Tottenham Police station on 6th August by the family and friends looking for answers. At some point that evening – tensions broke out, and exploded into what became a chaos of rioting that spread across city and country for the next 3 days.
These events draw parallels to the Brixton riot of 1981 following a covert police operation codenamed: Swamp 81.
