What You Didn't See At The Jubilee

4y ago


Produced & Directed by James McGuire This protest was arguably the most politically & socially relevant aspect to Queen Elizabeth II's Diamond Jubilee, yet an aspect which the mainstream media for the most part chose to marginalise, stigmatise or flat out ignore. For that reason, I voluntarily produced this short in order to document a more representative record of the positive nature of the protest. Find out more about the Jubilee Protest and the British Republican movement: Shot on 3rd June 2012 near Tower Bridge, London, UK. Graham Smith is CEO of Republic, which calls for the abolition of the monarchy and the establishment of an elected head of state Peter Tatchell has been campaigning for human rights, democracy, LGBT freedom and global justice since 1967. Ted Vallance is a historian of early modern Britain, and the author of 'A Radical History of Britain: Visionaries Rebels and Revolutionaries'. Joan Smith is a novelist, journalist (The Independent) and human rights activist, who is a former chair of the Writers in Prison committee in the English section of International PEN. Emily Robinson is Executive Chair of Republic and a lecturer & academic with the University of East Anglia. Clem Harcourt is a supporter of Republic.
