Croydon riot victims host final screening of Riot from Wrong

Croydon Guardian: Croydon was badly hit during the riots Croydon was badly hit during the riots

The last major public screening of an award-winning documentary on the 2011 UK riots will be at the Fairfield Halls next week.

West Croydon Voice, a platform for Croydon’s post-riot campaigners, is hosting the showing of Riot from Wrong at the halls in Croydon on December 5 at 7:30pm.

The documentary is a feature length look into the reasons behind the riots which began after the shooting of Mark Duggan in Tottenham on August 4, 2011.

After the screening, a panel discussion including documentary director Teddy Nygh and Carol Duggan, Mark Duggan’s aunt, will take place.

Mr Nygh, said: “Viewers tell us the documentary is compelling and that it cuts beneath the surface to provide insight into the real story behind the riots.

“Our aim is to bring communities together, so that we can collectively address the issues and learn from what was a dark time for Croydon and other parts of the UK in the summer of 2011.”

Croydon was one of the areas worst affected by the looting and violence that took place during the riots, including the arson attack on furniture store House of Reeves.

However, Bushra Ahmed, founder of West Croydon Voice, said despite major financial investment into Croydon the underlying problems which caused the riots have not been dealt with.

Ms Ahmed said: “It troubles me that Croydon has never addressed the issues that caused the riots in the first place.

“I am also concerned that young people in Croydon have not been engaged in the town’s regeneration; this just amplifies disenfranchisement.

“We need to engage our young people, and incorporate their perspectives so that they have a stake in the community.”

Very negative comments. Croydon is great and wonderful things are going to be happening with Hammerson/Westfield'
s new shopping centre, although this will all take time. Also - on 5th December Croydon is celebrating the official opening of the new East Croydon train station entrance. Lansdowne Road till have food and craft stalls, street entertainment, live music and performance and local traders - from 4 to 10 p.m. Really exciting stuff.

well i suppose the highlight of your year will be the opening up of a new train station entrance, but other people are more concerned why croydon is not what it once was, and the likes of you who have insulted people in the past on here who highlighted these points.....

I write articles for The Croydon Citizen saying how much Croydon has improved since I first moved here in the 70s. I don't insult people. I just point out the truth.

And it is not the highlight of my year. My year is full of highlights, which I write about in my blog - The Good Life in Croydon.
