Black with a video camera? Perfect target for Police

Rashid Nix and OBV's (Operation Black Vote) Simon Wooley were harassed and treated like terrorists by the Met police, seemingly simply for being black with a camera, while on the streets of Brixton South London, shooting the documentary Why Don't Black People Vote? Ironically, the footage of the police woman's harassment, ended up being the explosive material that she was looking for, and ultimately found its way into the doc. Undercurrents is an award winning alternative news service producing videos of people taking inspiring actions.
