Pictures from the riots in London. Members of the community took to the streets to demand “justice”, after Mark Duggan, 29, was shot dead by police on Thursday, Aug 4th 2011.

Riots began in Tottenham, north London on Saturday and then spread south and east to Brixton, eventually ending in Oxford Circus and Islington by Sunday. 


Play by play coverage can be found here at The GuardianUK.

Before and after pictures of the damage can be seen here  via Google Street View.

Also commentary by Darcus Howe, a West Indian Writer on the riots.



My heart goes out to all affected.

London:Stand UP
