27-29 Headingley Lane, LS6 1BL Leeds
We face an age of massive political change. Racist nationalisms, pervasive gendered violence, environmental breakdown, corporate power and precarious jobs — the system we live in doesn’t work for the majority of us. But, however little we hear about it in the mainstream media, social movements around the world are throwing down a powerful challenge to the status quo. From the cities leading the way in real transformative change, such as Barcelona and Jackson, Mississippi, to hunger strikers in the Yarl’s Wood detention centre, people are demanding change and creating it themselves.

If you want to explore alternatives to our current system, learn the skills to fight injustice here and now and meet other like-minded young people, join us at We Rise.


— Bertie Russell on radical cities — Barcelona and beyond

— Aisha Dodwell on the case for open borders

— Tamara Hopewell-Barreda on feminism, Zapatista-style


— Migrant solidarity: fighting the government’s ‘hostile environment’ policy

— Taking on big pharma: campaign strategy

— The power of ideas: creating your own political education experiences

— Direct action: learning from the anti-fracking movement


People will be travelling from across the UK for We Rise. To help people make it to Leeds we have a limited number of travel subsidies available, and will try to organise some free accommodation. Check out the event page for more info.
