Media for Justice and Peace
Rise Up Times Welcomes You!
Truth is not fake news. Justice is not fake news.
News, information, stories, commentary, videos with perceptive views on current events and issues.
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 Times is concerned about the rise of totalitarianism and fascism and suppression of democracy, particularly in the United States but also across the globe. Free discussion is necessary to any government truly by the people.
Rise Up Times posts articles about a variety of issues:
“There is no such thing as a single-issue struggle because we do not live single-issue lives.” —Audre Lorde

The people yes. The people will live on. …

In the night, and overhead a shovel of stars for keeps, the people
“Where to? what next?”
