“‘We Shall Overcome’ was launched as a reaction to the 2015 election. A group of musicians decided to put together a coordinated series of events in defiance of the Tory victory, but more specifically, the ever-deepening cuts to come. We considered, and still do, Austerity to be an ideological attack on our communities and we oppose it outright.
Working under the tagline ‘A Raised Fist and A Helping Hand’, we decided to use our events not just to protest against Austerity with words, but through our actions, to help those suffering most under it; but the one is inextricably linked to the other- we are NOT a charity and we are NOT apolitical.
We exist to bring people together, not to tear them apart; we are a broad alliance of like-minded people looking to help, protest, unite our communities and entertain, we use our energy not only to protest Austerity, but to work at easing its burden on our communities.”
Raising money for our two chosen charities; these two organisations have done some fantastic work throughout the West Midlands in helping those less fortunate and if you would like to know more please just follow the links above.
