Uncivil Unrest

— The Cube
Kill the Bill solidarity screening of Riots Reframed, and discussion
price: Headfirst Tickets

HEADFIRST STAFF PICK

“The Policing bill may have passed but the fight continues! Film screening tracing the revolutionary legacy of the Tottenham Riots and abolitionism in solidarity with Kill the Bill arrestees. ”
Join the Headfirst mailinglist for recommendations.

Information:

Join Bristol Anti-Repression Campaign for a screening of Riots Reframed, and discussion about state and media responses to uprisings. As Kill the Bill arrestees continue to face demonisation and harsh prison sentences, how can we respond and keep taking action?

Speakers will include Global Women's Strike, Bristol Anti Repression Campaign, D Hunter (author of Chav Solidarity) and a previous Kill The Bill prisoner.

RIOTS REFRAMED takes the viewer through a journey that begins in Tottenham, London—where 29-year old Mark Duggan was shot dead by police in 2011—and spirals out to a broader and deeper look into the role of police, power, racism, government, prison, and resistance.

While providing an analysis of the Tottenham Riots, the scope of RIOTS REFRAMED is much wider and stands in its own right as a poetic but fierce challenge to the carceral system under which we live. The result is a radical social commentary grounded in knowledge and art, that synthesizes a number of voices—from prominent social, cultural and political analysts, to ex-prisoners still recovering from time inside.
