It's pretty funny, There's like 100 welsh coppers who seem bemused who've now all had to get the riot shields out, about 20 people living on the site behind the big abandoned building smashing up bottles have created a barricade of wheelie bins and debris along ashley rd, and there's a mixture of about 500 stokes croft types enjoying the  Tomato Slayer!

worst riot ever!

By the way the previous occupants of telepathic heights have nothing to do with the tesco protests

They batoned him in the side of the head and split his ear, from what I understand the first time and with barely any warning. Not clear on the exact circumstances, but matey seemed in mild shock. I doubt he had any idea what hit him the first two times.

Police seized a number of items –including possible petrol bombs - from the property.

Supt Ian Wylie said: "There have been several significant incidents in this building during the past few days, which have caused serious concerns to police and local residents.

Pretty strange series of police decisions, block off one of the busiest junctions in bristol the night before a public holiday, when they know a crowd of hundreds would form within minutes, just to get a few stragglers out of a squat?

They all seemed to be very well prepared for a riot, all the sergeant style coppers everywhere before any hint of stuff kicking off, helicopter needlessly floating overhead for hours and hours. The moment the pikeys started getting rowdy the riot gear came out, and then why chase them all down ashley road like that?

Almost like they wanted it to end up like this!

All the lefty types and bloggers picking it up on twitter, top ten trending in the uk, one of the most read stories on bbc already, very convenient timing around the introduction of new laws against squatting!

Seems like a massive waste of tax money, I read on Bristol indiemedia somewhere that there was police drafted in as far as South Wales, wouldn't have suprised me with the amount of vehicles that were there, I happened to been driven past twice today, What was the whole police cars parked up by the car shop with the boots open all about? Found that rather strange. Wicked photo's btw 1984, my mobile died on me so couldn't take anything.  Doh!

Also, was it just today or is there always 2 copper at the Tesco's? I remember reading an article about st Andrews park I think it is with the whole banning alcohol etc and it would cost £80ph or something crazy to have a cop there, surely Tesco's isnt paying £160ph for 2 when they have security too?

Yeah it was pretty shocking policing. Was walking home up stokes croft and got turned away by a line of police by cafe kino, milled around for abit then started heading back down stokes towards Best where another line of police were turning people around. They steadily pushed forwards and ended up getting sandwiched between the two lines for about and hour near the croft.

Things then kicked off with a load of yoofs throwing bricks out of skip on nine tree hill at the police vans. They eventually all drove off leaving a massive crowd cheering who then decended on Tesco's and smashed the shit out of the shop front. Must have been some proper toughened glass as they didn't get in, they also nearly turned over a police car parked out the front of it.

If you were going to pick a particular time, place, and situation to spark a riot in bristol, here's how you'd go about it

1) Weekend or a Public Holiday, ideally a hot day, so there's lots of people who don't mind standing around outside late at night.

2) Block off one of the busiest bits of Bristol at around about 9pm, ideally somewhere where there's been some "political" unrest recently.

3) Stand for a very long amount of time blocking off the area, don't tell anybody what's going on. Maybe put a helicopter with a spotlight above the area, even though it's well lit anyway, and then lots of people will show up.

4) When one or two locals start to throw bottles, don't bother going to arrest them with any of the dozens and dozens of policemen, just let it continue until you charge the whole crowd into another area.

5) Conveniently allow people somehow right into the middle of the blocked off area later on, conveniently forget to move one of the police cars from the area you're driving bystanders who have now become "protestors" due to the actions of the police. Watch as Tesco and police car get smashed up!

6) Release hasty PR statements out to the media, laugh as your stories of  "potential petrol bombs" and "trouble following an eviction" get pushed right up the agenda over the next few days.

Script as fuck.

The mainstream media are gonna have a fucking field day on tonights activities. With the new anti-squatting law due to happen this is fuel for their fire. A few people there tonight said the same thing.

I've just got back from spending about 4 hours there and to be honest it was fucking amazing. A huge range of different people were there, cops were massively out manoeuvred due to them being drafted in from Wales and not having any understanding AT ALL about the layout of the area. I spoke to loads of cops tonight and they had no idea why they were there or what they were doing. To me it looked like a training exercise.
There were a handful of local cops there and they were definitely NOT directing operations. At one line of riot police beside DMT/Turbo Island there was no sargent  or anyone of rank to direct them, one local cop, the rest were from South Wales.
There were containment efforts made where they were shouting "get back! Get of the road!" etc but there was a police van on the pavement blocking the only route out and people had literally nowhere to go. It was only after much shouting this point that they finally moved the van and let people get out.

The Tesco store got properly trashed but there was a very suspicious absence of police while this was going on, none at all within 200 yards. That was when the lone cop car got set on fire and fucked up. A few minutes after that they returned to the scene, put the fire out and made an effort to protect the Tesco building.
A photographer was attacked by the cops at this point too.

Throughout all this Best, Slix and Ritas continued trading.
 Grin

I had a fun night, many others did too. It was an historic evening which I'm glad I witnessed.
I'm well aware that there will be a media backlash about the whole thing but fuck them, that's what they do.

As a first Aider I assisted 2 injured people tonight, one caught a brick in his head and was bleeding like fuck, the other was run over by a police van which hit him from behind and probably broke his ankle.

1. I actually started this thread when i was at the grecian, because all the riot vans turned off glos road, to come down the road n go down the tiny road grecian is on, i thought it was going to st andrews park at first, but then they didnt stop coming and were all going back on them selves... seemed like they were lost.

2. later on when i had to had back into town, i was driving in and there was NO road block... i actually drove as far as kwik fit and saw a seat of flashing lights by metropolis... then a mass of protestors started coming my way, so i thought fuck this... tried to to turn road but suddleny all the riot vans came storming along, i managed to turn around but was pushed to the side by about 8 riot vans evntually being squashed between 3 riot vans on my left and police car on my right (there were also several taxi's and drivers as confused with where the fuck to go) so i put my window down and shout at the officer, mate where the fuck do you want me to go! he just replied "JUST FUCKING GO!" so i blitzed though a red light in a trian of about 12 riot vans by the point.

ontop of what people have said and from my own experience it seems there wasnt much organisation n way too much over policing and lack of comunication.


MASSIVE FAIL

btw just a little relation to the london riots where they left the police van in the middle of the riot n didnt do anything to stop it, that land rover scene seems eerily similar, where was ANY police, there was fucking loads there that could of prevented it?!

There was a very very clear absence of cops at that point.
No doubt the media will ignore this fact completely.

With that I'm off to bed.
Same time tomorrow everyone?

Didnt see any police other than fully clad riot police when i was there, Would have been much better if  the 5-0 had told people to go via brigtstoke rd or up knigsdown way. Rather than just being told to turn round.

Right, so just let me get this clear, because I just want to make sure I've got the facts, a riot raged for most of the night, smashing and burning up bits of my neighborhood for the sake of a few crusty squatters and a SHOP!!!

There was not political regime to be crushed, no political prisoners to be freed from torture and execution, no apartheid, no dictatorship to be taken down, no military oppression... a SHOP has opened.

How utterly embarrassing and shameful.

I'm a bit baffled as to why the feds didn't do the bust at like 4am, when there wouldn't have been a load of the general public milling about, getting pissed cos they don't have to go to work tomorrow.  Huh

Exactly...it would have all been over in an hour...i suspect that the police like to see these things as exercises for their own benefit and a bit of "show of strength"  which add up to an exercise in stupidity
