Story

Forty years ago Coventry was a grim place. The economic climate made people turn against one another. Angry people attacked those who they believed to be the problem - anyone different than them. Action was taken against the rise of the fascists, and communities came together via the medium of music.

For many years there has been a level of harmony in the City. The fascists were ridiculed underground, once awareness of their absurdity was made clear.

Now the tide has turned again. Several years of austerity has raised more than one suspicious eye, looking around for a scapegoat. Instead 9f looking in the right direction, violence has again begun to spill on to our streets. Communities pitted against one another, and through social media, the rise.of the fascist.

Rock Against Racism worked once, and we believe it will work.again. Our young people are bombarded with memes, and hate driven posts on social media. We believe that we can educate, and bring young people together with music and cultural events lasting until next year.

We already have bands, venues, and people from all walks of life giving their services and time for free, which is fabulous. However, we do need working funds.for printing, advertising, merchandise outlay, and nominal fees to venues for cleaning.

Please help us get this off the ground by donating a small amount of money if you are able. If not, (and we understand that, we really do) perhaps you could share on your social media for us?

Thank you in advance, and please wish us luck educating our young people that diversity.is an asset, not a threat.
