Delete this Page[edit]

There's nothing wrong with it except it is so incomplete it is meaningless. There were so many riots in London, the phrase "King Mob" was invented. The Chinese had so many (really huge) riots, they invented a special weapon to deal with them. The listing of the Japanese "rice riots" gives the impression they only happened occasionally - nuts they happened regularly for over a thousand (more?) years. The "impressment riots" (depends on your definition of riot) of the British Navy Press Gangs is just the easiest to document of similar riots from the entire world including some in Africa that didn't even have a central govenment.

The least we can do is be honest enough to change the name to something like "A list of riots researched in english in one short afternoon". 'cause that's about what it is.67.166.148.125 21:35, 25 February 2007 (UTC)

This list includes only two of the hundreds (more?) of "town versus gown" riots of over 400 years of European history. It does not seem to include any of the student riots of Imperial China that happened regularly every year after the "qualification tests" (title?) for imperial placement.67.161.177.2 20:39, 8 March 2007 (UTC)

I disagree. Most contries have specific definitions of riots and also keep records of these events that are to be distinguished from unlawfull protests. As a historico-political event of significant magnitude, it is relevent to keep a record of those in an encyclopedic matter as well as the historical documentation that describes them. Your argument proposes we switch the name of the list from list of riots to list of known riots. As the page will grow, we will eventually separate the list in different pages according to historical periods and/or geographical regions

Other Riots[edit]

Added 2001 Cincinnati Riots and the Whig riot of 1840's. I have no details on the Whig riot except it's mentioned in the article concerning the Second Bank of the United States article. I'm not even sure if it was referred to as the "Whig riot" so if anyone can add depth to the article, or give it a more appropirate name, that'd be appreciated

--Duemellon 17:24, 16 Aug 2004 (UTC)

Added the Boston Massacre to the list of riots

Was there a 1979 riot at a "Who" concert in Cincinnati? -- Jokes Free4Me 17:51, 23 September 2006 (UTC)


"1961 - Berlin Wall Riots" ??? quotation plz. Imho the only riot with the Berlin Wall involved was the "Mauerfall" on 09.11.1989 83.176.132.154 03:34, 24 October 2007 (UTC)

Not true. Berlin citizens did clash with the Soviet-created Vopos as the wall was being built around West Berlin. This is a known fact. -------User:DanTD (talk) 18:35, 28 November 2012 (UTC)

Problems[edit]

Okay, I think we need a universal definition of "riot." I was tempted to remove several items on this list - Seattle, Genoa, etc. - because my idea of a riot is people indiscriminately destroying property, looting, for its own sake. The only thing close to a "riot" in Seattle was the black blocs smashing windows, but it was quite planned out with very specific targets: Starbucks, McDonalds, etc. for political reasons. People robbing a jewelry store and flipping cars over for the hell of it is an entirely different story. I somehow doubt anyone's going to read this, though, haha --Tothebarricades.tk 00:36, 17 Sep 2004 (UTC)

The definition of a "riot" seems to differ country to country however I belive this list includes all riots, defined as a large amount of people committing violent acts (vandalism, assault, etc.), regardless of motivating factors. There's certainly a huge distinction between rioting and unlawful assembly which would probably be a good idea to clarify. 209.213.71.78 22:24, 12 May 2005 (UTC)

We really do need some clarification. For example the 1968 Democratic National Convention "riots" were mainly a police riot against unruly, but non-violent demonstrators; the Romanian Revolution of 1989 was quite a few things (it may have been two or more rival coup attempts mixed with street protests and military or Securitate violence), but it doesn't particularly seem to have been a riot, certainly less so than the Storming of the Bastille, which is not on the list. Etc. -- Jmabel | Talk 06:50, August 27, 2005 (UTC)

Gothenburg riots[edit]

There was som riots in Gothenburg in Sweden a couple of years ago (i do not know exactly when).

Are you refering to the 2001 Gothenburg Riot ? I believe that was a demonstration against the EU Gothenburg Convention if I'm not mistaken. 209.213.71.78 22:28, 12 May 2005 (UTC)

Yet more riots[edit]

http://www.adena.com/adena/usa/rv/rv005.htm

seems to list a bunch of American riots not on the list. I am not in a position to research these. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 24.147.11.214 (talkcontribs)

Need to list more international[edit]

That raises a good point. We seem to be missing a lot of recent riot occurences. For example, a casual wikipedia observer would get the impression that within this decade there have been as many unique riots in Sydney as their have been riots in North America. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 211.31.61.93 (talkcontribs)

Ireland[edit]

Missing lots of riots in Northern Ireland.

Battle of the Bogside etc...

—Preceding unsigned comment added by 87.232.34.199 (talkcontribs)

I've included the Battle OF the Bogside.Template:Dermo69

Roman Election Riots[edit]

The list as I found it included "Roman Election Riots of 121 BC" and "Roman Election Riots of 113 BC". In an admittedly cursory internet search, I find no corroboration of any such riots. I do, however, find the following incidents related to Roman elections of that period:

In 132 BC, a group of Roman senators led by Scipio Nasica attacked and killed Tiberius Gracchus and followers at an election rally. The Wikipedia identifies Scipio Nasica as Publius Cornelius Scipio Nasica Serapio.

In 122 BC, a military force led by Lucius Opimius attacked protesters led by Gaius Gracchus. Many protesters were killed and Gracchus committed suicide to avoid apprehension.

I can only surmise that these incidents may have been the intended subject of the original entries. In the accounts I have found, these incidents are portrayed as politically motivated massacres, not as the quellings of riots, so I will construe them as such.

Pending further investigation, I am removing the "Roman Election Riots of 121 BC" and "Roman Election Riots of 113 BC", and adding the above incidents to the List of massacres.

We got a VERY serious problem: ex. The Peoples Republic of China puts down riots (as defined by their law) approximately 100 times a day. This list is going to get a LOT longer (if the Chinese permit someone access to their state security records).24.10.102.199 01:05, 23 February 2007 (UTC)

the list below is removed from Race riot article. It must be either incorporated here. Possibly a new article, List of riots by country, may be created (the List of riots is a common chronological one). `'Míkka 19:12, 20 July 2007 (UTC)

This page is a poor joke[edit]

Just a casual glance shows before 1881 we do not have one single riot that isn't (un PC comment here) whites. Bluntly I don't think so.

That's just what I spotted with a quick glance. I won't waste my time trying to fix a PC joke.67.161.166.20 01:06, 8 October 2007 (UTC)

Regarding Northern Ireland[edit]

I have noticed that this has been mentioned before, but there are so many riots missing that accured in Northern Ireland. For example Drumcree is missing and many more.

Phil5329[edit]

You misunderstood. The note was for the readers. The editors already know the page is bad.Aaaronsmith (talk) 18:35, 29 May 2008 (UTC)

Yes Phil5329, I DO see disclaimers on other wiki pages.Aaaronsmith (talk) 01:24, 20 June 2008 (UTC)

Since you don't like the way I have tried to inform the reader of the article's bias, why don't you come up with a way to explain a 2000% error? This is not a rhetorical question. If you can't do it, please let someone who's at least willing to try make the attempt.Aaaronsmith (talk) 01:31, 20 June 2008 (UTC)

Problem[edit]

Interesting observation: The legal system I am most familiar with defines a "riot" as any public disturbance involving 4 or more people and it can be prosecuted as the crime of riot. At 3 or less, it's only "disturbing the peace".Aaaronsmith (talk) 19:41, 20 June 2008 (UTC)

Chinese imperial official examinations[edit]

The chinese beuracracy has had placement by exam for thousands of years. Only about 1 in 20 of the test takers got jobs. Every city that had the tests had riots after every test. For a total of (maybe?) 5 or 10 thousand riots overall?24.10.111.154 (talk) 05:52, 24 June 2008 (UTC)

Really really incomplete[edit]

We seem to have missed all of the riots in Berkeley, Calif. USA. Most of the simultaneous riots of the Haight Ashbury, San Francisco, USA. And a whole bunch of college (university actually) riots that also took place at the same time. Two of which I am personally involved on the campus of the University of California at Los Angeles. And, unless I scanned too fast, not one single riot from the prisons of Mexico.24.10.111.154 (talk) 06:03, 24 June 2008 (UTC)

I'm already as bored pointing out the mistakes as you are reading them.

Is it just my imagination or did we miss 15 or so riots by Muslim "youth" in France in the last decade?24.10.111.154 (talk) 06:12, 24 June 2008 (UTC)

The French wine growers are rioting - today.Aaaronsmith (talk) 18:36, 27 June 2008 (UTC)

An idea[edit]

Perhaps we could edit this page to be list of NOTABLE riots? And then instead of adding an infinite amount of riots we could subtract some instead? -Phil5329 (talk) 21:47, 27 June 2008 (UTC)

Missing riots[edit]

Just stumbled across this site:

http://maggiesfarm.anotherdotcom.com/archives/4701-Banned-in-China.html

Basically claims 74,000 riots in China in the last few years.

Now, I wonder, if the chinese can keep the MSM from being aware of that many riots, how many riots in the rest of the world are being concealed from this little attempt at Political Correctness?Aaaronsmith (talk) 22:24, 27 June 2008 (UTC)

Grouped by cause?[edit]

Was/is there a page which organized the riots by the "cause" (i mean both the motivations of the initial rioters and conditions which led to the riot)? i only ask because i had a friend doing essay work regarding anti-globalization, and i, remembering some page which featured a list of anti-globalist riots, spent nearly an hour on wikipedia looking for it.

24.3.14.157 (talk) 09:11, 2 July 2008 (UTC)

ADF this page fast. It's a bad mistake.[edit]

Do a search on the web: Use "riots in china" and "per day". With a little looking you will find several things confirming 74,000 riots a year in china in 2008.

Example:

http://economistsview.typepad.com/economistsview/2005/09/pollution_spark.html

An article that can't even keep current on current events is a major misinformation to the average reader.

Update: The same Mexican prison has had a second riot 19 dead this time. I notice this list does not include one single prison riot outside Western culture and only 3 outside the United States. My word, the US must be a truly terrible place if killers and psychopaths in foreign prisons are so happy they never riot.

AfD suggested real fast[edit]

Just did a little checking.

This list is losing ground just in the Western cultures. If you include the whole world, it's coming up short a couple HUNDRED A DAY!

That is just plain ridiculous.Aaaronsmith (talk) 19:51, 3 October 2008 (UTC)

Do we even have a definition of riot? In (modern) cultures, a riot can is legally defined as everything from as few as four participants, or must involve violence, or must involve a refusal to disperse, or (some of the more authoritarian countries) any public gathering that does not have a license.

This article has all of the problems of a bad article. I want it Afd, but if you want to keep it, the least you can do is provide a working definition.Aaaronsmith (talk) 21:35, 27 October 2008 (UTC)

Undefined content = huge mess[edit]

I'll add my voice to others on this talk page: without a clear idea of what goes in, no definition of what "riot" means in the context of this page, this is nothing more than an arbitrary collection of events ranging from minor protests to bloody riots. Wikipedia not being an ndiscriminate collection of information, it would be reasonable to limit the list to those riots that are significant or at the very least "notable" enough to have an article on Wikipedia (and notable *as* a riot (as opposed to a notable event where violence is a footnote). Equendil Talk 20:07, 2 June 2009 (UTC)

HUGE MESS[edit]

You know, this article is just plain awful. We've missed several thousand riots just in 2009 - if you include the whole world and don't just want to make the parts w a free press look bad. We even missed the Mexico prison riots of the last months and even the Mexican press reported that - in detail.

World War II (and a whole lot of other wars)[edit]

We do not have any of the "prisoner of war" riots that occured in prison camps. This happened a lot. If the prisoners thought they were being set up to die (usually by starvation, with the administrative excuse of "the food will arrive tomorrow") the common response was to riot - thereby having some small chance of survival.Aaaronsmith (talk) 21:54, 23 June 2010 (UTC)

RfD[edit]

Ya know guys. Wiki already has a "list of riots and civil unrest in Omaha, Nebraska". Has about 40 entries.

How about someone who know how put it up for RfD.Aaaronsmith (talk) 17:38, 25 June 2010 (UTC)

Article needs substantial citations[edit]

This article is interesting, and has the potential to be useful; however, per WP:V we should not be sourcing assertions with other Wikipedia articles, nor should we have substantive assertions that are unsourced by reliable secondary sources with inline citations. I have tagged just a few of the assertions that need cited with {{citation needed}}. N2e (talk) 17:39, 19 July 2010 (UTC)

Citations and sources are needed[edit]

Please be sure that all additions to the List of riots are verifiable. Any new items added to the article should have inline citations for each claim made.

I have removed the major part of the unsourced material that had been previously tagged {{citation needed}} for at least a couple of months with no sources added. If you have a source, please feel free to add the material back in, along with the citation. N2e (talk) 16:32, 24 December 2010 (UTC)

Warp 30, Ensign[edit]

The Sacramento Bee (June 13, 2011) has reprinted an article from the New York Times by Michael Wines. Basically, China has admitted to at least 127,000 (yes you read that right one hundred and twenty seven THOUSAND) riots last year.

This list is getting to be a terrible joke. Can't we at least change the name to something that actually makes sense?

At the very least, we should approach this the same way List of named passenger trains was approached years ago. Split it up and turn this page into a meta-list. ----DanTD (talk) 23:20, 13 June 2011 (UTC)

This list of riots makes lots of sense, and is completely manageable. It is totally understandable that the request to delete it, was nixxed. It makes a lot of sense that there is more riots in 2011 than the entire 1970s. Alas, I've noted that the 'Australian Nudist Colony Riot of 2008' was missed. Source: http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,505137,00.html. Could someone add it for me ? :P OK, I'll remove my clown hat now and put on my serious hat now. On a serious note, if pushing rope seems like a worthwhile endeavor and this page isn't allowed to die a natural death, it would seem to make a lot more sense if the riots were grouped by region first and then time and it only included riots that were significant (aka newsworthy) for that region in that time period rather than every little riot. If a group of riots for a region and time period of a certain nature e.g. food riots, were common place a note could be made to that effect. If there is a riot on this list that noone would not remember in 20 years, or noone outside of the municipality it occurred in knows about, it probably shouldn't be on this list. Just my thoughts.

Merge "List of Deadly Riots"[edit]

I've noticed that the article List of deadly riots was recently created. While it might prove much easier to update than this one (hence why I didn't nominate it for CSD), it looks like a lot of it might be copy-pasted from here, and may perhaps be redundant. I'm not convinced we really need both. Thoughts? This article is already massive in scope, so I'm a little unsure as to how to proceed. Cheers, Zaldax (talk) 20:45, 14 August 2012 (UTC)

Disambiguation of riot from unlawfull protest and civil unrest[edit]

Most countries in the world do pocess strict definitions and keep legal records of those events. Those records are a safe source of reference for the build up of that list and encyclopedic referencing. On the other hand, different media outlet and political groups tend to instrumentalise the term riot in order to alienate socio-political movements in order to attack the legitimity of different demonstration events that could be otherwise described as peacefull protests, civil disobedience, parades, celebrations and/or even public assemblies. This is a known strategy typically used by authoritarian regimes to attack and supress dissent, freedom of speech and resistence movements. In order to keep the neutrality of that article, I propose we only list in this article events that corresponds to those legal descriptions and to witch credible records assess the pertinence of the event to be described as a riot.

for example, in Canada :

Unlawful Assemblies

63. (1) An unlawful assembly is an assembly of three or more persons who, with intent to carry out any common purpose, assemble in such a manner or so conduct themselves when they are assembled as to cause persons in the neighbourhood of the assembly to fear, on reasonable grounds, that they(a) will disturb the peace tumultuously; or(b) will by that assembly needlessly and without reasonable cause provoke other persons to disturb the peace tumultuously. 
Lawful assembly becoming unlawful (2) Persons who are lawfully assembled may become an unlawful assembly if they conduct themselves with a common purpose in a manner that would have made the assembly unlawful if they had assembled in that manner for that purpose.
Exception(3) Persons are not unlawfully assembled by reason only that they are assembled to protect the dwelling-house of any one of them against persons who are threatening to break and enter it for the purpose of committing an indictable offence therein. 

Riot

64. A riot is an unlawful assembly that has begun to disturb the peace tumultuously. 

Punishment of rioter

65. (1) Every one who takes part in a riot is guilty of an indictable offence and liable to imprisonment for a term not exceeding two years.
Concealment of identity(2) Every person who commits an offence under subsection (1) while wearing a mask or other disguise to conceal their identity without lawful excuse is guilty of an indictable offence and liable to imprisonment for a term not exceeding 10 years. 

Punishment for unlawful assembly

66. (1) Every one who is a member of an unlawful assembly is guilty of an offence punishable on summary conviction.
Concealment of identity (2) Every person who commits an offence under subsection (1) while wearing a mask or other disguise to conceal their identity without lawful excuse is guilty of(a) an indictable offence and liable to imprisonment for a term not exceeding five years; or(b) an offence punishable on summary conviction.

Reading proclamation

67. A person who is(a) a justice, mayor or sheriff, or the lawful deputy of a mayor or sheriff,(b) a warden or deputy warden of a prison, or(c) the institutional head of a penitentiary, as those expressions are defined in subsection 2(1) of the Corrections and Conditional Release Act, or that person’s deputy, who receives notice that, at any place within the jurisdiction of the person, twelve or more persons are unlawfully and riotously assembled together shall go to that place and, after approaching as near as is safe, if the person is satisfied that a riot is in progress, shall command silence and thereupon make or cause to be made in a loud voice a proclamation in the following words or to the like effect: 
 Her Majesty the Queen charges and commands all persons being assembled immediately to disperse and peaceably to depart to their habitations or to their lawful business on the pain of being guilty of an offence for which, on conviction, they may be sentenced to imprisonment for life. GOD SAVE THE QUEEN. 

Offences related to proclamation

68. Every one is guilty of an indictable offence and liable to imprisonment for life who (a) opposes, hinders or assaults, wilfully and with force, a person who begins to make or is about to begin to make or is making the proclamation referred to in section 67 so that it is not made; (b) does not peaceably disperse and depart from a place where the proclamation referred to in section 67 is made within thirty minutes after it is made; or (c) does not depart from a place within thirty minutes when he has reasonable grounds to believe that the proclamation referred to in section 67 would have been made in that place if some person had not opposed, hindered or assaulted, wilfully and with force, a person who would have made it.
Neglect by peace officer 69. A peace officer who receives notice that there is a riot within his jurisdiction and, without reasonable excuse, fails to take all reasonable steps to suppress the riot is guilty of an indictable offence and liable to imprisonment for a term not exceeding two years.

http://laws-lois.justice.gc.ca/fra/lois/c-46/page-22.html#docCont

If you take in consideration that

6. (1) Where an enactment creates an offence and authorizes a punishment to be imposed in respect of that offence, (a) a person shall be deemed not to be guilty of the offence until he is convicted or discharged under section 730 of the offence; and (b) a person who is convicted or discharged under section 730 of the offence is not liable to any punishment in respect thereof other than the punishment prescribed by this Act or by the enactment that creates the offence.

Therefore, as long as some events are not explicitely described as riots by legal authorities, enacting the article 67 of the Criminal code, the events should be considered foremost as alleged unlawful assemblies, so, not be listed on that page.

As an example, the part of the article 2012 – Riots in Montreal, due to tuition cost increase, referred to as the Maple Spring or Printemps érable, 2500 arrests as of May 25. refers to civil unrest events that implies a multitude of protests under the form of lawfull and unlawfull assemblies. As far as my own research on the subject went, at no moment during this political movement I found an event where the article 67 was enacted neither any individual accused by the authorities under the article 65 during that movement, thus, this part of the article should be removed.

If at any moment, records are found that proves a riot did occur and accusations where deliverd , then, the specific riot event should be added to the list, not all the political movement that was devloping in the backgound.
