Chopcassava is a web series that documented the January 2012 fuel subsidy protests in Lagos, Nigeria. The videos are an insiders' view of the events and were originally uploaded on YouTube as the protests unfolded. 

Produced by Funmi Iyanda and Chris Dada, the series was created by a team of young and courageous Nigerian media professionals and we are excited to have been nominated as best web series (Non- Fiction) at the 2012 Banff World Media Festival.

The videos are presented blog-style, as they appeared originally - with the last entry first.
