Thread: Sources for news clips etc....?

  1. #1

    Default Sources for news clips etc....?

    I am wanting to make a music video for a friend with an anti-establishment style theme...I'd really like to include some footage from recent protests as well as snippets from politicians being interviewed....Does anyone know of any sites where you can access these sort of files for free?

    Thanks for reading
