The UkRiots - as the riots erupted in many areas of London and of other cities in the United Kingdom between 6th and 10th August 2011, following the death of Mark Duggan, were labelled in the global communication platforms - were an explosion of collective rage which came few months after another resounding warning, signalling an ever-expanding social discontent: the one expressed by the students autumn protests against increased university tuition fees, culminated in London on 25th November 2010, with the occupation of the Millbank Tower, the headquarters of the English tories. Two traits were shared by both revolts. Set in a frame of economic crisis, where even the most weak members of the middle class begin to be entangled in processes of impoverishment and proletarization, they represent a moment of opposition against the austerity measures enacted by the scheme of "Big Society" formulated by the Cameron cabinet. Nevertheless they find another linking point in the broad resort to digital technologies by all the parties involved. The purpose of this article is to probe the relation occurred between the UkRiots and the digital media platforms crossed, with different goals and objectives, by the different parties which clashed on either side of the barricade.
