Media for the People!

“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 welcomes dialog and discussion, “difference of interpretation and opinion,” within the editorial guidelines in articles posted and in comments made on posts, but personal attacks and hate speech will be removed.


Truth is not fake news.  Justice is not fake news.

The primary focuses of Rise Up Times continue to be the media, anti-military/ propeace, and civil liberties. At the same time, Rise Up Times is somewhat eclectic, covering national politics, eco-concerns, and Minnesota issues. Articles from readers who send 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.

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.

Resistance is no longer an option, it is now a matter of life or death. the lights ar going out on democracy across the globe and the time to wake up from this nightmare is now.

—Henry A. Giroux

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 darkness with a great bundle of grief the people march.
In the night, and overhead a shovel of stars for keeps, the people march:
      “Where to? what next?”      

Carl Sandberg
