In April 2016, tens of thousands of protestors flocked to central London to protest a new round of austerity budget cuts proposed by then-Prime Minister David Cameron. While the outrage at the purposeful diminishing of public services was the main message of the protest, many also voiced their concerns regarding a tax scandal, and their wishes for more equality and solidarity.

About the uprising project
The Uprising project revolves around the right to protest and demonstrate. These happenings are commonly portrayed as flare ups, especially if there is violence, and presented without the context of what lead to the outbreak and what happens during these demonstrations. Inside these uprisings, communities form between sometimes very diverse groups. We aim to show the story of people who sometimes risk their lives for their convictions — even if that means just being there and waiting.
