Resource description

Now that the cleanup from this week’s riots is underway, it is an apt time to reflect on why they occurred in the first place. While many commentators are quick to judge those who rioted as simply ‘thugs and criminals’, Bart Cammaerts argues that we must understand the long term economic and social reasons behind the turmoil if we are ever to move forward.
