Spread the word – Rise is back!
Well, to be exactly correct, UpRise is here. Or will be on Sunday 3 October in Finsbury Park.
Remember 2008? One of the first acts of newly-elected London Mayor Johnson was to remove the anti-racist message from the Rise festival.
Trade unions and community activists reacted with anger and astonishment – but also with action – and the result, in 2010, is UpRise, anti-racism festival, described on the website as “a new festival born out of the ashes of the former Rise festival”.
Back with UpRise will be SERTUC’s UnionCity – the area for unions – for stalls, meeting and music.
