We Shall Overcome
The Old Turk
A RAISED FIST & A HELPING HAND- 6/7/8 OCTOBER 2017
Child poverty, food banks, benefit sanctions, bedroom tax, cuts to disabled support, carers in crisis, soup kitchens, rough sleeping, homelessness, mental health crisis, pawn shops, payday lenders. Why do these things exist in one of the richest economies on earth?
We Shall Overcome is a movement of musicians, artists, activists and community organisers who are angry about the human costs of austerity policies but who want to do something practical to help those affected.
Over the weekend of 6/7/8 October we’re encouraging people to organise gigs and events that will get direct help to those in our local communities who have been adversely affected by austerity policies.
Friday 6th October –
The Blind Dead Mc Jones Band
Chris ‘The man in the Hat’ Martin
Poet Simon Widdop
DJ David Prime
Admission: Free entry
