Rise Up Times | Learn more and help sustain Media for the People!

Rise Up Times Welcomes You!

Dear Fellow Activists,

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 more than ever.

We stand at a crossroads: We can choose Democracy or we can choose a non-democratic form of government controlled by few for their advantage. Trump represents a system that attempts to drive us towards an authoritarian regime that profits the 1%.

We the people continue to rise up and resist in many ways — on the streets, in the legislatures, in the cities and towns, in the universities, as we rise against this monstrous machine locally, nationally, and globally, creating solutions grounded in the common good while challenging corporate militaristic globalism based on racism and white supremacy.

Your support is essential and appreciated. Rise Up Times needs your assistance to continue to bring you up-to-date news about issues crucial to the survival of Democracy and the planet. You make People Supported News possible.

More than ever Rise Up Times needs your help to bring you the same quality articles, news, commentary, and analysis and perspectives in Rise Up Times that you have come to expect. Independent media is essential during these Rise Up Times for the truth to be told and for organizing resistance. Please donate today.

​If you wish to mail a check, please make it payable to Sue Ann Martinson/RiseUpTimes and send to 2900 11th Ave. So., Unit Box 209, Minneapolis MN  55407.

Rise Up Times

P.S. Thank you. Your continued support does make a difference, as does every phone call you make, every email you send, every protest you attend, and every step you take.

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.  

Donate Now. Thank you. Here are more ways to help Rise Up Times bring you an alternative to the mainstream corporate media.

    Rise Up

    Rise against our enemies
    Hatred, lies, and greed
    Rise against divisiveness
    Inclusiveness is what we need
    Bridges to the future build
    Creating a new way
    Rise to fulfill our destinies
    And bring on brighter days!

    Rise up!
    Demand some damn equity!
    Rise up!
    We must all hit the streets!
    Rise up!
    Retake the reins of power!
    Rise up!
    Before the Doomsday hour!

    Rise against destructiveness
    From want we want, to need
    Rise against this brutal way
    Keeping us enslaved
    No, we’re not free!
    Rise up before it’s too late
    Or we’ll extinct ourselves
    Because the insane run the halls!
    It’s up to Us to make this call!

    Rise up!
    All stand tall or We shall fall
    Rise up!
    Yes!
    We do have the power!
    Rise up!
    Only We the People
    Can answer this call!
    Rise up!
    We are responsible for all!

    Rise against evil intent of Users
    Which no god or demon sent to abuse Us
    From the minds of some wishing to Us all!
    Those in power?
    There are separate rules for them!
    Foolishly believe cash and power
    Are what it takes to win!
    Making them not our leaders
    They are just fools for war
    Doubling down on cruelty!
    For once and all
    Let’s rewrite their rules to favor We!

    Rise against love’s enemies
    Hatred, lies, and greed
    Rise against divisiveness
    Inclusiveness is what we need
    A bridge to the future build
    Creating a new way
    Rise to fulfill our destiny
    And bring on brighter days!

    Rise up!
    All stand tall or We shall fall
    Rise up!
    Yes!
    We do have the power!
    Rise up!
    We the People
    Must answer this call!
    Rise up!
    We are responsible for all!
    Rise up!
    Demand some damn equity
    Rise up!
    We must all hit the streets
    Rise up!
    Retake the reins of power
    Rise up!
    Before the Doomsday hour!

    Rise up!

    Rise up!

    Rise up!

    Rise up!

    (fades, repeating)
