British Police History, 1981 Brixton riot

British Police History, 1981 Brixton riot

For three days in April 1981 young black men battled the police on the streets of Brixton.

The breaking point was exasperation at oppressive use of stop and search, in particular the massive ‘Operation Swamp 81’.
