Violence and death should have no place in a society that delivers opportunities,
respect and justice to its youth and communities. What has led to the spike in violent
crimes? The Government is now responding with more heavy-handed policing but
without acknowledging its own failures. The media has raised alarms over the number
of deaths in London exceeding those in New York as if some number is acceptable
Are our children really the gangsters and violent thugs that the Government and media
would have us believe? Or are they simply pawns in a bigger game, where the impact
of neglect has helped to create an environment where they have little or no means to
develop self-esteem other than through the use of aggression or violence?
What is clear is that we wont address the problem unless we understand the political
and social drivers that shape our lives and our communities. Unless we fully
understand what makes our youth so angry, how can we support or guide them
The meeting is organised by Tottenham Rights.
Tottenham Rights was initially established as
Tottenham Defence Campaign in after the 2011
riots following the shooting of Mark Duggan.
