Observe and Report Brixton

Scenes from Brixton by linniekin on flickr.

It is the second day of violence on the streets of London. Seems like something from a novel or a news report from 1979, but this is going on right now in 2011.  I’ve never been fully in tune with what is happening on the streets there before but in times of crisis like this I get reports and information not from the mainstream media but via trusted contacts in that region.  If you are concerned about what is happening and seeking information, OR – if you’re there are you have something to report, I recommend doing so using the crowdmap for Brixton that is up and running.  Go there, follow the simple instructions for reporting, and you’ll be helping not only to tell the world what is going on, but also to get more accurate information that might help those most immediately at risk.
