My third first video project: Abortion
It’s been 40 years since the Abortion Act 1967 has been adopted and a legal defence became available for doctors that perform abortions under certain circumstance. Since then, abortions have become safer and more accessible, but with an average of 200,000 abortions carried out every year in England alone, it has become clear that abortion is treated by many as a means of contraception. This video looks at some other issues of the current debate around abortion.

Worldwide campaign calling for action: Burmese demonstration in London
Demonstrations were held outside Chinese embassies in 12 cities around the world to mark the 12th year of detention of Burma’s pro-democracy leader and Nobel peace laureate – Aung San Suu Kyi.
Students, immigrants and refugees from Myanmar (formerly known as Burma) joined the demonstration backed by scores of campaigners representing a range of NGOs, including Amnesty International, as well as students and other members of the society sympathetic to the cause.
The demonstration in London was held on Great Portland Street. The Chinese diplomatic mission in London did not issue an official comment in relation to the protest.
My second first video project: NUJ rally
Following budget squeezes, job slashes and letters inviting world class journalists to ‘voluntary resign’, the National Union for Journalists has finally decided to act and react. A series of demonstrations were held nation-wide and in several locations around Mainland Europe to raise awareness of the crisis in the media industry. Serious speeches were delivered and friendly jokes were exchanged at the final rally, where the NUJ’s current president Michele Stanistreet, along with a number of colleagues cut a square cake in celebration of NUJ’s 100th birthday.
