Taking Liberties

Synopsis
A shocking, polemical film that charts the destruction of basic liberties under 10 years of New Labour. Released to coincide with Tony Blair’s departure, the film and the book follow the stories of normal people whose lives have been turned upside down by injustice - from being arrested for holding a placard outside parliament to being tortured in Guantanamo Bay.
