Escalating direct action for all our futures

Why you should support Rising Up!

History shows us that significant change only comes when people are willing to confront the power of vested interest through non-violent mass civil disobedience.

Rising Up! is a new network focused on facilitating the escalation of mass civil disobedience across the UK, in response to the many interconnected social and environmental injustices. We understand nothing will change till we change the toxic political and economic system we live under. We understand our movement must be based in gratitude and reverence, whilst looking after ourselves, each other and the planet.

We base our strategy and tactics on the latest research into what work what forms of action achieves best results. Our structure aims to distribute power and facilitate autonomy.

We are not fundraising for salaries etc, we gift our time because we are passionate to make lasting change. We do need help to pay for, for example, leaflets, technology, support for those who get arrested, equipment/props used in non-violent direct actions etc.

Our latest action focussed on helping communities resist unjust airport expansion.

True power lies in the collective - together we are irresistible! System change requires 3.5% of the population to rise up, so we are Rising Up!
