"Reclaim the Streets - Birmingham, UK. An organised street party erupts during the G8 summit." April 1997 (20mb/5'28min)
Reclaim the Streets - the film!

The final location is kept secret, because they know that the state and business will not be amused. Reclaim the Streets! is born, a cocktail of raging love, revolutionary carnival, art and anarchy. Since then, clandestine street parties have erupted all over the world. From Hull to Sidney, Lyon to Tel Aviv, Vancouver to Valencia, people are taking back their streets. And this is only beginning."
Download the Reclaim the Streets film here - it's got footage of the Birmingham G7 street party.
