Photograph shows a protester carrying a 'closing down sale' sign to the recently vandalised TESCO store in Stokes Croft, BRISTOL. Around 8pm, on the 21st April 2011 police shut Cheltenham Road, in Stokes Croft. Based on speculation and rumor from Tesco that lodgers of the squat across the road were making petrol bombs, the property was raided by the police. Allegedly they didn't arrest anyone. Before the police had time to pull out, word was out that the police were evicting the residents! Riots broke out. Main action was pushed back to Picton street and City Road by Riot police. Dogs were used, Fires were lit... eventually the police pulled back and the new Tesco store vandalized. Things fizzled out by about 5am.
