Long Live Southbank - "The Bigger Picture" | Video


For over 40 years, Southbank has fostered a culture of skateboarding in London. Now, this world famous skateboarding spot is under threat of being bulldozed to make way for a shopping mall. Skateboarders and many Londoners are outraged at the plans to wipe out the landmark, and they are not backing down without a huge fight. Long Live Southbank, an organization formed to keep the aforementioned spot, launched their latest video campaign entitled, The Bigger Picture. A variety of interviews with local skateboarders, professional skateboarders, musicians, nearby residents, Long Live Southbank members, and even the former Culture Secretary voice their views on the importance of maintaining this area.
