Ruby Pseudo: Jody McIntyre’s Bars For Change
An online music video series from the UK asks tackles police brutality and extremist groups.
Journalist, author, film-maker and political activist Jody McIntyre who was dragged from his wheelchair and struck with a baton by a member of the Metropolitan Police during the student protests in London last year teamed up with channel 4 and music site SBTV to make the series ‘Bars For Change’, which aired earlier this year. The series examines hot political topics for young people such as ‘Who polices the police’, government cuts and UK extremist groups. By weaving political music from artists such as Ghetts & Durrty Goodz alongside a documentary narrative, the series makes for engaging and informative viewing.
