It’s enraging watching the news right now so I have stopped for a bit, I need a break from the constant updates about the riots. I’m not in one of the affected areas but the activity is moving south. Looting/damage in Brixton is hitting almost a little too close to home.
My boyfriend joked that I must be happy that I moved to South London. Definitely, since last year May I was living in one of the areas that was burned and looted this weekend. Read this post from my then local bookstore. People’s homes have been burned and they have to be rehoused, and this isn’t over yet.
