The true story of the riot in Tottenham

'Reel News', who describe themselves as 'an activist video collective' have produced a fantastic film explaining what really happened on the day the riots began in Tottenham. By interviewing the residents of the area, the group has produced a film that tells the real story without any of the mainstream media's bias, omissions, distortions or outright lies. We do not hear the pious words of politicians or the police repeated as fact, but eyewitness accounts from the residents of the area. We do not hear condemnation, but explanation.

This is an excellent example of independent media telling the true story sadly missing from mainstream reportage. Everyone should watch it.
