Tottenham riots moved to Kingsland High Street in East London. Remarkably this street was effectively defended by an vigilante of people of Kurdish origin. They say they defend their area against looters because the police do nothing. The news that these Kurds of Turkish origin defend themselves is presented as something good by the media: at least by Guardian reporter Paul Lewis:
Kingsland Road chaotic as Turkish men attack other, predominantly black, youths with sticks, metal barricades and bricks.
