[edit] Information

Fighting the System More young people than ever are disillusioned by society and a system where capitalism is king. They are fighting back. This groundswell has given birth to a new breed of young activists, who are prepared to sacrifice everything in order to stand up for the issues they believe in. This film tells the story of four extreme protesters who are using direct action, risking their safety, their freedom and their futures, to force their way to change. They are armed with the latest technology to fight an increasingly hard line. This film shows the lives of young activists who have taken their fight to the streets and are using social media to mobilise others to join them and, of course, to grab the attention of the press and celebrities to help their cause. We meet animal rights extremist sisters, Phoebe and Jayne as they take on massive high street shops in an attempt to stop fur sales; we join environmentalist Danielle who illegally occupies an energy company against controversial fracking; Sarah takes on her local council in the fight for social housing; and we are embedded with Yaz who, after confronting Rupert Murdoch, sees the end of her long campaign against The Sun's infamous page 3, however short-lived it may be.
