Taking Back Control | Britain’s Forgotten Men

Taking Back Control | Britain’s Forgotten Men


People feel like the government
aren’t here for ’em any more.
Can’t get a job, can’t get a car,
can’t get anything.
Can’t get your life on track
so you get your house.
It’s pretty shit.You can call us feral, you can call
us chavs, you can call us pikeys,
you can call us hoodies.They’re sick of seeing their parents
being thrown out on the street.
They’re sick of asking for food
hand-outs.
They’re sick of seeing their nanas
struggling for money.
People are waking up.They’re actually getting ready
to fight back.
Manchester. It’s one
of Britain’s wealthiest cities.
But go a couple of miles
out of the city centre
and you find a different story.A ring of white working-class
estates that are down on their luck.
Who are you lot?What’s the problem round here, then?What do you want the council
to do for you?
If the council is listening, what do
you want from it?
Clayton is one of the most deprived
parts of Britain.
Male life expectancy is ten years
below the national average,
and half the residents are under 30.It’s a very working-class area.Just down the road from hereis where the Industrial Revolution
was born.
You probably can’t get more working
class globally if you tried.
The factories that was here
aren’t here any more.
We have a lot of people
in sort of menial work,
and a lot of people on benefits
within the area as well.
I totally think
people feel forgotten,
especially working-class people.I don’t really know where to start,
to be honest.
I mean, people are…People feel like the government
aren’t here for ’em any more.
And as a result of that,there is a growing sense of we have
to do it ourselves now.
See you later, mate.Like a lot of people round here,
Mikey had a tough upbringing,
with stints of homelessness.But unlike many, Mikey wants to do
something to lift his community.
How are you?I’m all right. How
are you doing?
Are you stressed out?Yeah.Bit hungover?A little bit, yeah.Yeah, as I couldn’t sleep, so…Right. Nervous? Excited?A bit of both, a bit of both.We need to go, anyway, let’s go.Mikey has rallied a group
of like-minded mates
who want to push for change
in their area.
Should we go to the park and drop
the generators off first?
They call themselves
the Community Action Network,
and today they’re going to throw
a free party
to spread the word on their estate.I feel doing free parties,
taking back space that belongs
to the people from the council
and saying,
look, we don’t need permission to do
this party here,
and bringing in people from the
local community, of all ages,
not excluding anyone.You don’t need a licence,
you don’t need no ID,
you don’t need to pay any money
to get in.
We’re taking back that space for
the community to get together,
to talk about how we can make the
community a better place
and to generally have a good time.Everything should come together in
the next couple of hours, hopefully.
It’s a lot of people involved.Obviously you can’t pull something
like this off on your own.
You need a whole community
behind it.
Hello.Hi, come in.I think there is no sense of
community really any more,
and if we can sort of show people
that we can come together
and do positive things, then to me
that would be a victory in itself.
There’s nothing for the kids
in this area,
so we’re just trying to put on
an event
because there’s absolutely nothing!Hello, mate. How you doing?
You all right?
What’s going on? It’s the evening.What happens now?No money now.Sit down.Basically just rely on the
generosity of the public.
See if I can make any money begging,so… That’s it.Get the cup out, which is…It’s actually not allowed to do,but not everybody sticks
to the rules, do they?
Spare change, please?It’s just trying to get money and
get somewhere to kip for the night.
It’s like £18 for the cheapest B&B
that I know.
How likely are you to make 18 quid?It could take five minutes.It could take five hours.
Could take five bloody days.
You never know.Not going too well.And if you haven’t got your 18 quid
together, what happens?
Stay on the streets.Oh, thank you, mate. It’s not nice.It’s not exactly what I want to do.Begging, asking the public
for money.
25p.I kind of have to do it.Street life.There’s a lot of people out there
who are couch surfing,
just staying at friends’.Bouncing around from place to place,renting a room when they can afford
it,
staying on boats, living in barns.These are people
you’re talking about.
These are people who had lives,
had loved ones, had family.
Had pets. Had goldfish!You know, hamsters.Regular lives.I’ve seen an homeless dude
with a lizard.
You know?What is beautiful about a doorway?I don’t know.
What’s safe about a doorway?
What in any way at all could you
call a doorway
any kind of shelter or home?In a squat, I get a warm,
safe, dry place.
This is Manchester’s most famous
squat,
the disused Corner House cinema.For four months, it’s been occupied
by a ragtag group
of squatters and protesters.They’ve turned the building into an
unofficial refuge for the homeless.
My front door closes.My windows close.
They’ve all got locks on.
I’ve got running water,
hot and cold.
I’ve got electric.I’ve got a nice bed
made out of cushions.
I’ve got a duvet
that doesn’t get pissed on.
Doesn’t get wet in the rain.If I say to you, there’s a building
there, mate, with all that in it,
where are you going to go?
You’re going to come here,
and when you come here, you know
what you’re going to experience?
You’re going to experience just what
you experience at home.
Everything that a home provides,my squats provide as well.But Chris’s home is under threat.The owners are determined to get
the squatters out.
So they’ve gone to the courts
to seek an eviction notice.
As the sun dips, Mikey’s party
has drawn a crowd.
And he’s spreading the word about
his Community Action Network.
What do you make of it?I think it’s
good for the kids in the community.
Gives them something to dorather than just loiter about
on the street.
I think bringing people together
and celebrating the fact
that we can come together outside of
the system,
that is the community, essentially.# But regardless,
you’re only 18, you’re a bit naive
# And you’ve never been searched
by the police. #
Young people of Manchester,
they don’t have a voice,
and they’re not organised.
And, you know,
the people who are supposed to be
acting as their voice
are just
consistently letting them down.
And until the government get off
their arse,
stop killing people in the street,
stop persecuting the poorest,
the most vulnerable, the youngest
people in this country,
the people that actually want
to train,
go to university and put taxes back
into the state,
instead of supporting them,
you’re putting them out here.
No-one’s happy round here.Fuck all to do.What is going on?
Spare change, please?
We’re the sixth richest nation in
the world, yet our social security,
our state, is a load of crap.It is what it is, isn’t it?
You can’t moan at it.
The young people of Manchester have
had enough, and, you know,
we’re all about linking together
and helping each other,
because we’re not getting any
fucking help.
We’ve got to get together, and we’ve
got to do it ourselves.
I don’t exactly want to sit here
putting my face to shame.
It’s just how it is.You’re lucky if you get a fiver
or something like that.
Any spare change, please?I’ve got no change.I’m a land pirate, and I’ve just
stole your building.
If you want it back, you take me
to court, go get it back.
This is the resistance.This is the last stand.Do you think you could cope
with living on the street?
No. It’d do me in.
Do me in mentally.
What does your dad say?
He doesn’t say shit. He’s dead.
I’m Jimmy. My son’s Jimmy.My dad’s Jimmy.You can send me to jail
all you want, you know.
Jail’s… Jail’s like, it’s more
comfortable than this.
There’s the man who fights
for people’s rights.

  9. the politicians are all we'll make jobs .. but big corporate creed of the time is cut downsize automate to make less positions!

  10. Weird how we keep taking in immigrants when there are so much to do for us that are here all ready… I understand that others need help but not on the expense of us who are here.. And STOP HAVING KIDS!!!! we are all ready too many

  11. This is the problem, we need to reach out to these areas other than focus on importing millions of outsiders. We've got our own folk like any country that need looking after and focusing on. We can reach out to these areas and bring back industry and improve education, however, we'd rather import millions and millions of migrants. Migrants are the biggest social welfare claimers in the UK and people say these guys are the problem. These guys have been let down by the government and while they focus on importing millions of outsiders, a certain part of our society suffer. Could you imagine the BBC doing a doc about black gangs? They'd disable the comments because we all know their and the left wing agenda. Englishman, fight back.

  12. Sorry but the Uk has its own to house and sort out. They can't accept everyone there and have their own issues to fix. Poor guys. They are just sticking up for their country!

  13. Absolutely nothing wrong with sticking up for your country. Been let down by your Govs while they import thousands and thousands of invaders without asking the British public. Shame on you BBC. You left wing idiots!

  14. GOOD GUYS! TAKE BACK YOUR COUNTRY ENGLAND BEFORE ITS TOO LATE. ALL OF EUROPE NEEDS TO REUNITE AGAINST THE MEDIA AND ELIETE

  15. Europe united against invaders and the elites. BBC are just part of the problem – don't worry England we will take back our countries! The working class fight back!

  16. Fight , fight for your RACE future your children futures, Fight for your country. Fight, Fight Don't get up.

  17. It’s pretty bad when you need captions for people speaking English on an English tv channel in England.

  18. More BBC establishment propaganda trying to stir things up and demonize the working class dam the bbc bunch of pathetic silver spooned snobbs

  19. Lol look at the migration problem then punks.
    Cowards won't go and deal with the real problem, just moaning about society.
    Society was ruined as soon as all these imagrants arived.
    These kids are just lazy and cowards, why don't they fight the real fight.
    God help Britain if this is what we got for the revaluation 😂
    Go home little spoilt children.

  20. I really feel for these guys. Maybe they should "immigrate" to africa, then get a boat to europe and sneak back into Britain? Then they may have some opportunities?

  21. working-class my ass… stop skipping school, or starting getting pregnant at 16 and there would be more opportunities.

  22. Police I blame? Police pick on Unemployed & low working class women beaten up in custody by Police No freedom of rights black people killed By Police Officers are Bullies 84 year old woman Puched in the face by Police just because she did not let them in her camper van,

  23. Strange how they are ALL WHITE British young men.
    Never see a black or Indian young man begging on the streets of this country…
    Is the government trying to kill off white men ?
    And to these White men in this film…
    This is NOT your last stand…
    This is your FIRST stand.
    Good luck to you all.
    Respects from this old White Fart !

  24. How you end up homeless answer is drug use drinking gambling smoking sleeping around with different strangers,no job it's obvious your going to end up broke,don't blame the government people pay taxes,it's upto you what you do with the money,also migrants come and find work because they want to work,they have seen real poverty.

  25. This is what it’s caused now you are seeing the people fight back. A war on the streets around the world it’s coming because the governments don’t give a shit shame on you

  26. The BBC is the problem they are your enemy. They threw a party instead taking the building and making it into something useful. Hmmm?

  27. We need to replace the Establishment Government with a Accountable Civilian Government. People who know the jobs the MP's clearly dont. This i believe is the only way forward for the United Kingdom. Let the people who built it, run it.

  28. British govts,media are very good at demonising the white working class, which they have always dispise, they star by making sure they stay poor, cuts to all front line services youth services clubs closed, then record school exclusions, record levelsvof immigration, draining more resources , excluded to go to any social ,sporting events, because their made so expensive, so basically left on the streets to cause havoc

  29. The worst lie ever told is that immigration is good for a nation's economy. No it is just good to keep the wealthy elite rich, by lowering wages with immigrants willing to work for very little. How can our governments justify open borders and massive immigration, when we have small armies of native citizens living on the streets?

  30. BBC should be questioning politicians; what are they going to do for the working class? Provide good jobs for men and women that want to work and provide for their families.
    God bless these people and direct there paths.

  31. Men must stand up for their rights too! 👍
    The femnist won and don't know what to do with it, so now look for anything to protest about. 😕

  32. OVER 20 YEARS A MIGRANT FAMILYS WITH 4 WIFES AND 8 CHILDREN COSTS? £ 25 TO £ 35 THOUSAND FOR ONE FAMILY PER YEAR – IF YOU TIMES THAT BY 25,000 IMIGRANTS ITS ROUGHLY £ 750 MILLION A YEAR!!
    ********************************
    NOW THE SECOND GENERATION
    OVER 20 YEARS HAS THERE OWN FAMILYS – IF YOU TIMES THIS BY 10 -12 YOUR NOW LOOKING AT MIGRATION COSTS FROM ANY THING FROM £ 3 BILLION, TO
    7 BILLION POUNDS DEPENDENT ON INTEGRATION? AND IF ANYTHING IS BEING PUT BACK FROM THE MASSIVE DEPT?
    *****************************
    THE HEALTH COSTS ALONE ARE IN THE BILLIONS OF POUNDS
    *******************************
    THIS IS WHY IN 2010 THE DWP CUT DISABLED BENEFITS BY ONE THIRD! REFUSING CLAIMS, RESULTING IN SCUICIDES ON MASS.
    ****************************
    MANY INCOMING IMIGRANTS NEEDED SCREENING FOR EBOLA
    AND NUMERIOS EXPENSIVE HEALTH ISSUES – THIS IS ONE OF THE REASONS THE NHS IS IN COLAPSE – GO INTO A NHS HOSPITAL AND LOOK AT THE MENU? 80% ASIAN FOOD!
    *****************************
    THE MIDDLE CLASSES WHO PAID FULL STAMP AND TAX FOR 50 YEARS WERE CHEATED, THE PENSION FUNDS WORTHLESS
    *******************************
    I AM NOT A RACIST, JUST BORN UK WORKED AND PAID IN TO THE SYSTEM, NOW DISABLED AND BEEN IN HOSPITAL 10 – 12 TIMES IN THE LAST 30 YEARS AND HAVE SEEN THE CHANGES AND JUST TRIED TO START TO FIND OUT WHY THE UK IS VIRTUALLY BANKRUPT AND TRYING TO PUT MY HEAD ROUND THE FIGURES
    ******************************
    THE GOVERNMENT DID NOT EVEN DO A BASIC COSTING AS TOO THE HUGE BILLIONS OF POUNDS NEEDED FOR SUCH FAILURES TO DO BASIC COSTINGS SO WE ONLY HELPED WHO WE COULD AFFORD!

    THE ENGLISH RACE IS OUTBREAD
    TO EXTINCTION ONCE THIS OAP GENERATION HAS GONE – WHO
    IS LEFT? YOUR CHILDREN WILL
    BE IMIGRANTS IN THERE OWN LAND AND BECOME MUSLIM
    BY ELECTION OF THE MAJORITY

  33. Every law abiding UK citizen must be given the right to bear arms and stand your ground laws to protect their use. It's past time for real Brits to rise up and take back their country. Pitchforks, Torches .and Rope! Open Borders + Amnesty + Voting Rights = Civil War.

  34. This is what the Bankster Globalist Agenda want's. All through out Europe and the Western world countries. Mass migration from Islamic Nation's and Africa are being use as Muscle, by NATO and The E.U, To Destroy and Destabilize, the Economies and the Social fabric of Family, Culture, Language and Borders. This is a slow Genocide of the Western Free World. The New World Order is working for a ONE World Government. They have to DESTROY it, before they can REBUILD it !!!. Millions of people will Parish. Be Woke People !!!!.

  35. Wish Canada wasn't full of such pussys and would actually raise some hell against the government

  36. The sad part. None of them look like they r on drugs. So theyre homeless not because of drug use or alcohol. Britain itself is over populated then they brought in assilum seekers. Giving them homes education food benefits. And i agree u have resources to help other people then yes help them. But when u have native people struggling its human rights to atleast provide resources so that this doesnt become a major problem

  37. If you can not afford it take it
    If there illegals take it as it belongs to you illegals own nothing

  38. Bottom line is, I've been on the road long before these lil shit, now I have a 13 year old, I will know everything he does, he ain't never going outside to walk streets like these lil divs, it's their parents, what they doing even if they work come home and out on the TV, it's parents fault aswell as added designed to break us down fin the system but ultimately it's parents fault, dnt like what I said then go an suck ya mum so to speak

  39. Your councils are labour and liberal the blame goes no further socialism at it's best !!! vote them out it's your choice God bless you all

  40. Don't expect any truth from the BBC or the CBC (in Canada). Both demonize hard-working decent white Men.

  41. When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

    We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, –That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness

    Truer words have never been spoken

  42. If he could play an instrument he would get alot more though idk if that's legal there I did that in Armenia with a guitar and made lots of money for over there

  43. perhaps all the 20,000 BBC employees extra tax payments and the £4 BILLION budget could go towards helping these poor lost souls?….Im sure Gary Lineker would love to pay more tax?……

    How many of you are sick of the BBCs bullshit propaganda day after day (and SKY/ITV/Channel 4/LBC)…funded by the OUR TAXES, the United Nations and the Globalists…time for the BBC to be shut down……….

    Anybody reading this under the age of 30 dont be taken in by the BBCs BIASED LEFT WING/Socialist/'Progressive' (COMMUNIST!!!) PROPOGANDA……..they are the Lord Haw Haw of 2019 Britain…..the fifth column looking to undermine this great country from within…..CANCEL YOUR TV LICENCE…I HAVE………….

  44. It's only going to get worse until Europe decides tp put its citizens first but that's highly unlikely as they don't fit in with the elitist's agenda. Reprehensible policies make these young men veritable outcasts in their own countries, it's an atrocity..

  45. The ENGLISH are begging in the streets whilst immigrants get housing for their 4 wives and 22 children. It's time to burn London down!!!!!

  46. "The child who is not embraced by the village will burn it down to feel its warmth"

    This is how your society dies.  You have turned on your own men, and now they will take EVERYTHING from you!
