Shift Magazine Issue 12 - Editorial

New Film about Stokes Croft Riot - not just riot porn - interviews with locals

28-04-2011 08:57

This is a roughcut of a short film looking at what happened in Stokes Croft Bristol at the beginning of the bank holiday. We have decided to put it up as a public roughcut as there does not seem to be an independent (i.e. non mainstream) account of what happened and why it happened (and it will take a few days to finish it).

28-04-2011 08:14

The parasites' big day is nearly upon us and the rhetoric coming from the Met becomes more disturbing by the day with a benign but sinister state message warning us no protest will be tolerated but also advising supporters to monitor the weather! Human rights appear to have been suspended, civil liberties no longer matter and it’s all okay because we have 364 other days of the year to protest.
