Video from the UCLA Taser Protest Rally

Before you read more...
Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls. We believe when reliable local reporting is widely available, the entire community benefits. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.

As you might have seen, LAist has been all over this UCLA taser incident. We showed you the disturbing video as soon as it appeared on YouTube, we gave you the administration's response, we let you know how other blogs viewed it, we let you know how other California colleges thought about it, we even had a staffer stoke you a photo essay of the protest that we feel is better than the LA Times' -- mostly because our guy took a superb photo that is going around the world.

Now we are lucky enough to show you a video from the protest, which gives you a greater understanding of the huge turn-out on campus last week in support of human rights.

This is just one of three clips from Jim Kazemi, the videographer; the other two can be found on YouTube here and here.
