The British Student Rebellion

A documentary produced at the tail-end of the November through December 2010 student uprising in the UK where over 50,000 students and others rebelled against forced austerity measures. They took to the streets and occupied universities and campuses. In-depth interviews with 3 organizers and activists discuss the events and assess the massive student demonstrations in November, the police tactic of "kettling," broader European efforts to resist forced austerity, the Occupations that took place, as well as student and worker alliances, hopes for continued struggle in 2011, and vision and strategy to get beyond capitalism, racism, sexism, and injustice.
