Reading the Riots launches Community Conversations

From the guardian website: Six months on from the unprecedented events of last August, the Guardian/LSE’s groundbreaking collaborative study into the disturbances is hosting a series of grassroots debates in riot-affected cities across England.

These meetings will be open debates, organised in conjunction with local community groups, and will be a chance for the people directly affected by the riots to give their views about what happened in the summer and in the aftermath.
