U of Nottingham Blog: Climate Change on the Bathroom Wall: How Vice, BuzzFeed and the Huffington Post report on environmental issues

Shouting protesters are running around, smoke enveloping them, and the camera is as close by as possible: While watching the video, the audience gets the impression of standing right in the middle of a demonstration, as environmental protesters clash with French riot police near the site of the global climate summit in December 2015. The Vice reporter who did the video, Milene Larsson, intended exactly that, to convey the feeling of “getting squished, not able to go to the toilet, nor to find water, and not knowing what was going on. Experiencing it, seeing the reactions of people is helpful in order to understand what drives them onto the streets to protest.”
