“Melbourne’s first Rock Against Racism, a part of Leaps and Bounds Music Festival will combine some of Melbourne’s best Hip Hop, Garage and Punk acts with Spoken Word, with some special guests speaking thrown in the mix! The gig has been organised alongside other efforts and campaigns to tackle issues and raise awareness of racism in Australian society. From Abbots attacks on refugees to the street fascism of Reclaim Australia and its offshoots. The event will be fundraising for RISE (Refugees, Survivors and Ex-Detainees) and W.A.R (Warriors of the Aboriginal Resistance), because what better way to combat a racist system than support some of the groups fighting it!”
July 9th, 8pm, The Evelyn Hotel. Fitzroy.
