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 timely articles and information about so many important current issues in these Rise Up Times. Please donate today.

Support independent mediaDonate Now!

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.

    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)
