Stokes Croft Tesco riots & residents alternative supermarket - BBC 
Inside Out West, Bristol

Inside Out West - 19/12/2011
In April 2011 rioting returned to the streets of Bristol. This time, 
the trouble was focussed on Stokes Croft, one of Britain's most 
colourful urban communities. A new chain supermarket store which had 
been opposed by many local residents found itself at the centre of 
the disturbance.
In the months since the violence some local campaigners have 
continued to oppose the presence of this store. Their belief is that 
giant corporations will destroy the character of Stokes Croft and 
force small independent businesses to close down.
This documentary profiles a group of residents who are trying to 
offer an alternative to the supermarket, selling locally sourced 
foods. But can they really compete with the corporate muscle of the 
supermarket giant?

alienates the possessor from the community" Carl Jung

Fear not therefore: for there is nothing covered that shall not be 
revealed; and nothing hid that shall not be made known. What I tell 
you in darkness, that speak ye in the light and what ye hear in the 
ear, that preach ye upon the housetops. Matthew 10:26-27

Die Pride and Envie; Flesh, take the poor's advice.
Covetousnesse be gon: Come, Truth and Love arise.
Patience take the Crown; throw Anger out of dores:
Cast out Hypocrisie and Lust, which follows whores:
Then England sit in rest; Thy sorrows will have end;
Thy Sons will live in peace, and each will be a friend.
