As part of the Vice The New Wave series, we meet The London Black Revolutionaries, a movement of radical young black people who do not feel represented by the "white supremacy" of our current political system. They hope to bring consciousness to the black working class with innovative direct action that supports the communities they feel have been historically forgotten by government.
The Black Revs first came to public attention in 2014, when they concreted over Tesco's anti-homeless spikes in central London. The spikes were removed, but inspired similar actions in Madrid, Brazil and Egypt.
They're holding a protest this Saturday, called: "F*CK THE TORY COUP - NO TO ALL CUTS - YES TO REAL DEMOCRACY", which tells you all you need to know about how they're feeling after the election results.
