Wednesday 5 November saw the biggest Million Mask March London has ever seen in the three years since its inception. Thousands of protestors poured down Whitehall to Parliament Square, which has been fenced off since the Occupy Democracy protest turned walking on the grass into a revolutionary act.
Ten arrests followed clashes, as protesters tore down fences and tried to reclaim Parliament Square for the democratic right to protest, moved on to Buckingham Palace to show disgust for the monarchy and then on the central London studios of the BBC, where the public funded news and television organisation was criticised for its news coverage and accused of covering up the Jimmy Savile child abuse scandal.

The film follows on from the 2008 film Press Freedom: Collateral Damage that exposed the extent of police surveillance on street journalists. The film includes interviews with photojournalist Jess Hurd, NUJ General Secretary Jeremy Dear and Hickman and Rose partner Anna Mazzola. They are a few among many who continue to campaign to expose and fight the increasing erosion of civil liberties and press freedom in the UK.
