Who Burnt Us Out?

On April 17th, 2004, incendiary devices went off at multiple points inside the 1936 Art Deco-style North Street Arcade (BelTel) and more than 20 businesses, including Good Vibrations record store, were burnt out. Suspects were interview (Guardian) but no charges were ever brought. “Who burnt us out? People before profit.” “Fat cats get fatter – puts the kittens out in the cold.” “They burnt us out – don’t let them get away with it.”

The third image is from October: new shutters have been graffitied with “New shutters wont hide the fact that you burnt out twenty businesses – shame on you.”
