WE SHALL OVERCOME!

Oct 6-8 2017. A raised fist and a helping hand.

2015

Over the weekend of 2nd/3rd/4th October 2015 hundreds of people worked together to organise gigs and events around the country with the purpose of uniting in the face of a government whose agenda they opposed. The gigs were both a show of solidarity and a means to offer practical help to those affected by the policies of austerity.

Many gigs supported local food banks or other projects designed to get help directly to people in need. In all 250 gigs in 123 town and cities across 8 countries on 3 continents raised an estimated £125,000 worth of food, cash, clothing and bedding for those at the sharp end of cuts.
