We Want to Riot, Not to Work: The 1981 Brixton Riots


Manufacturer: Past Tense Publications

Product Information

After more than a decade of repeated attacks, arrests, harassment, and racist provocations by the local police and the Special Patrol Group, in April 1981, Brixton erupted in a massive uprising. The riot - followed by more in July, part of a nationwide wave of disorder - shocked the British state. Though labelled 'race riots' by the press, in fact blacks and whites fought side by side, in the first anti-police riots for more than a century. We Want to Riot, Not to Work(originally published 1982) combines rip-roaring personal accounts of the riots from unashamed participants, with a radical analysis of their causes, and the response of the authorities.

Past Tense Publications, 2013.
