ChangeMakers (AUS)

Placing yourself in harm's way is powerful but scary. Often it is fueled by the white-hot anger of knowing that you're on the side of justice, and yet failing to make the change you need. This is a two-part exploration of times when direct action was used to confront an overwhelming force. Part one looks at the remarkable #FeesMustFall student movement in South Africa, that all started when someone threw poo at a statue.
