Saturday Night & Sunday Morning
Saturday Night & Sunday Morning

Janet Bujra and Jenny Pearce

Saturday Night and Sunday Morning marks the tenth anniversary of the Bradford riot of Saturday 7 to Sunday 8 July 2001. The day began with a peaceful demonstration against a banned Far Right march but ended in one of the most violent examples of unrest in Britain for 20 years. More than 320 police officers were injured as they battled rioters who hurled missiles and petrol bombs, pushed burning cars towards them and torched buildings. Criminal acts of looting characterised the final hours. Riot damages amounted to £7.5 million. In the aftermath, nearly 300 arrests took place and nearly 200 were charged with riot leading to prison sentences of four years or more. Images of the riot, and of a smaller disturbance which followed on one of its traditionally ‘white’ estates, have haunted Bradford ever since.
Nine years later, in August 2010, Bradford faced another Far Right provocation. The English Defence League came in force to demonstrate against Bradford’s Muslim population. Bradford braced itself. However this time, Asian lads mostly stayed off the streets and the police worked with the council, communities and local activists to keep order against the threat of violence.
Saturday Night and Sunday Morning traces Bradford’s journey over the decade, beginning with the voices of rioters, police and others interviewed after the 2001 riot and ending with those of former rioters, citizens, police and politicians following the EDL protest. The authors argue that while 2001 reflected a collective failure of Bradford District to address a social legacy of industrial decline in a multicultural context, 2010 revealed how leadership from above combined with leadership from below restored its confidence and opened up possibilities for a new era in Bradford’s history and prospects.
Saturday Night and Sunday Morning is written by two authors from the University’s renowned Department of Peace Studies who balance research with an active commitment to peace, economic regeneration and social justice in Bradford.

Stan Stennett
26 November 2013. It is with sadness that we learned today of the death of entertainer Stan Stennett. We worked with Stan a few years ago to publish his autobiography, Fully Booked, and he struck us as a true gentleman who had packed an amazing amount into his life.
We wish Stan's family all the best.
