Street debate after the riots

A year after the riots there seems to be the occasional mention of the riots one year on and what has changed and what has happened. Well whilst idly browsing youtube I came across the following video of a group of people who vary in race, nationality and background (and country of origin) who started discussing in public first the riots and then then origins of the riots and the problems in society that caused it.
 There's a lot of people talking over each other so be patient but there's a lot of good and interesting points made. It is well worth watching.

 I would recommend you watch it to the very end.
  It is my belief that these sort of debates really need to happen a lot more. Raw, spontaneous debates on the street where people can express themselves and talk about their society and why they think the things that happen actually happen.
  The next step would then have more publicised debates of that nature. That is how public opinion and knowledge grows.

Food for thought.
