Media for Justice and Peace
News, information, stories, commentary, videos with perceptive views on current events and issues.
Rise Up Times Welcomes You!
Truth is not fake news. Justice is not fake news.
We don’t have to tell you what dangerous times we face.
We need your help to bring you in-depth articles and information about important current issues in these Rise Up Times. Please donate today.
We publish fearless writers from independent press sources who tell story after story not found in the mainstream corporate media, who actually analyze ideas, concepts, and politics, in spite of pressure and attempts to censor them, and strive to connect us to gateways for action to act locally while thinking globally, in this small world modern technology has created.
The primary focuses of Rise Up Times continue to be the media, antimilitary/propeace, and civil liberties. At the same time, Rise Up Times is somewhat eclectic, covering national politics, ecoconcerns, and Minnesota issues. Articles from friends who send me emails with significant commentary to post, as well as Coleen Rowley’s posts and comments on the Rise Up Times Facebook page, make Rise Up Times a community of contributors.
As the presidential election heats up, we are publishing more about politics than usual: the issues are manifest and not always covered by mainstream corporate media or in the presidential debates. Check RiseUpTimes.org or if you are a Facebook member check the Rise Up Times Facebook page for daily posts about current issues.

P.S. Your donation will help Rise Up Times continue to inform and engage people to fight in every nonviolent way possible for compassion and caring for the people of our country and the world and against the corporate greed that drives militarism and climate change and the loss of the commons in the gradual destruction of our planet.
Thank you for reading and sharing Rise Up Times. With a mainstream corporate media that is beholden to powerful financial and political interests that do not have the people at heart, we need to share and discuss information and issues more than ever.
The politics of truth is in the interaction. Factual truth is the bedrock of a free politics. Difference of interpretation and opinion is its process.
—Jeffrey C. Goldfarb, The New School for Social Research
Rise Up Times encourages measured and inspired dialog and discussion in response to articles.
“We don’t have to engage in grand, heroic actions to participate in the process of change. Small acts, when multiplied by millions of people, can transform the world.” ―
