Anyone can be an activist – all it takes is passion and a willingness to use your voice and your platform to push for what you believe in. i-D meets the young people doing exactly that in Britain — transforming the country on a local and national level through campaigning, social media, grassroots projects and within parliament. Find out how you too can get involved in your community.

So interesting how liberal media outlets are purposely trying to be the voice of these movements, in order to make them less materialist. You are part of the problem i-D and you and any other corporation needs to be disowned and turned into a cooperative. So stfu about trans-issues, race issues and any other progressive cause because as long as you operate under the profit motive you are the base cause for these societal ills. You remind me of the weapons manufacturers sponsoring floats at pride parades, nobody takes liberals seriously, go die in a fucking corner with this anti-revolutionary bullshit.

How are y'all gonna upload a video and then close the comment section when you don't get the comments you want. Weak minded people that run this channel. Not mature enough to hear views you don't like? Sad.

Some of them might be fine but like people like the African woman are the typical "oppressed" black people that exist in the US as well and the 3 kids in the end are just retarded if you want representation which in US it exists make your own unique movies and tv series..

Raf P yes we should make or own films but it’s hard to get into spaces where white people are the ring leaders. Imagine how hard it was for people like micheal. The fact that people still struggle with getting into space just because is sheer stereotypes is disgusting for 2018. We aren’t as unracist as we should be or act like we are in American society so stop denying it.

"Anyone can be an activist" Yeah well activism isn't inherently good. Not saying I agree or disagree. Just saying.
eggo (1 month ago)
+A .G Yeah thank god for nazi activism and communist activism. Those were great.
A .G (1 month ago)
eggo you wouldn’t be here without activism if your a female, poc, or lgbtq. instead of complaining about this you should be grateful for the people who were here before who had to fight for simple things like women being able to vote, being able to eat wherever you want, or being able to marry whoever you want. At least we have the sheer right to fight for even better because minorities a hundred years ago would be killed for it and people are still being killed for it now in 3rd world countries and even in America sadly.

hi names lael (2 months ago)
+eggo eh, I'd argue not that many people know alot about politics
eggo (2 months ago)
Young people are also the people who know the least about politics and the world in general. So it's a double edged sword really.

Oh Damm. Europe really is falling.

stop dressing weird, get an education , then you can change the world for real. Get in to law school if you really want to change something in the parlament of britain
DrQupax (2 months ago)
You are the reason these people are doing what they are doing. They ARE changing the world, while you sit behind a screen being mad at it.
Jacqueline Le (2 months ago)
That kind of thinking is why you aren't the one creating change

Quite funny to see people dealing with equality as privilege here in the comment section. Won't take much till it turn to hate speech. Chill fgs....
Shinkajo (1 month ago)
+Talles Di Cunto Thanks for clarifying
Talles Di Cunto (1 month ago)
Minorities being able to be represented. Maybe *equity could have been a better word choice
Shinkajo (1 month ago)
What do you mean by "equality as privilege"?
hi names lael (2 months ago)
As long as this somehow turns into something being done about climate change net good will be worth anything I may find frivolous

I wish they would be honest for once and admit that they just don't like Britain, it's history, nor it's people.
Dᴇsᴛɪɴʏ (29 days ago)
To be fair, British history isn't something to be proud of, particularly their foreign affairs. Britain has colonised so many countries and is one of the reasons why the countries are still poor today. Not too mention how many wars they took part in. /:
master DOGE (1 month ago)
A .G It has a racist history but the people currently alive right now don't give a shit if a person is black white or fucking blue.
A .G (1 month ago)
I wish you’d be honest and realize that Britain has a extremely racist history and they are trying to make it a lot more equal. What is wrong with that ?
A .G (1 month ago)
master DOGE ItS ALREAYD FaiirrrrRrr. Some people can’t even get a job because there name is Daquan ( sounds to black ) and that is trash for a society that claims everything is equal.
master DOGE (1 month ago)
Elle La it already is fair. You know which societies aren't fair? The ones that have Islam embedded in it.

Props to these people but stop parading activism around as a prestige trait, it comes from a need and desperation not ego
Of course they change Britain, because they are not British. But, unfortunately, this is our future. Soon all countries of Europe will change.
A .G (1 month ago)
Also what is so bad about diversity? I really don’t get it. People wanting to become more equal and more human in society makes you uncomfortable somehow ? White people are so power hungry smh.
A .G (1 month ago)
You’re using a phone that’s made in China to type this. If you’re really about things staying British then stop using things imported and made by people from other countries lmaooo. You have the audacity to complain about that because your whole life would be shit without people from around the world creating resources to not make it that way.
A .G (1 month ago)
Britain wouldn’t be Britain if it wasn’t for the imperialism of reasources from 3rd world countries like Africa and the slavery used to build your infrastructure off of low pay and discrimination. We have a right to be in these spaces because we helped create them and fought to make them better for minority groups like your mom, your black friend, and your gay cousin while you British people did nothing
hi names lael (2 months ago)
