Black Out 2022, and "The Second Renaissance" part of The Animatrix, are about the struggle of synthetic people against oppression. Scenes in both show violent human mobs attacking and destroying synthetics in the streets, with particular attention given to a synthetic girl apparently created to be used for sex. The synthetics then rise up against humanity.

Both are co-productions between Japanese studios and western companies, meant to fit as parts of popular western media franchises. They feature mostly realistic artstyle (excluding parts of Batman animated from Studio 4°C) and high-quality, natural-looking animation. 
report Recommended by Krankastel
Both were directed by Shinichiro Watanabe. Terrorists (Rogue Replicants and Sphinx) fighting for a cost, of their freedom and open the people's eyes. Both Blade Runner: Black Out 2022 and Zankyou no Terror had a similar climax and good animation.

Thoughtful cyberpunk about humans and sentient machines created to serve them, with similar art styles that are a mix of 2D and cel-shaded CG.
