See Peckham Peace Wall

Designed to mirror the wall of notes posted on the front of Rye Lane Poundland after the 2011 riots, the Peckham Peace Wall was opened on 8th August 2012 in what your author thinks is called Peckham Square to mark the first anniversary of the 2011 riots, recreating the original notes in a permanent display.

We are told that the notes were digitally hand-traced by artists Garudio Studiage, who worked in tandem with the young people of Peckham, with the support of Peckham Space and Southwark Council’s Greener Cleaner Safer fund, to create a piece of public art which no-one can accuse of lacking meaning.
