This film is about the recent protests that have taken place in Windrush Square: Brixton, South London
Windrush square is a place of local cultural and community focus. The protests that have take place in the square have a wider resonance to the rest of London by focusing on issues that have a significance to the whole city: gentrification of the area, rising price of living, government funding cuts
Windows into Protest is a project in partnership with 3 countries where protest in many different forms is taking place: Ukraine, Turkey and the UK. We have chosen 3 public squares in the main cities of these 3 countries. All of these public spaces have significant histories as well as present-day relevance to their urban populations.
Although the types of protest and what people are protesting about, seems on the surface, very different, there are common themes to be found, particularly how urban populations feel disenfranchised from their local authorities/government.
