The summer’s riots and the Occupy movement are both protests against, and a rejection of, an economy that is no longer working for most ordinary citizens

By Rodney Barker

Abstract

2011 has seen the streets of London dramatically occupied, first with the riots and looting that struck in August, and more recently with the tents of the Occupy LSX encampment. Rodney Barker argues that both forms of ‘street theatre’ are a response to the perceived ills of the modern economy
