Oct 01 – 05 : We Shall Overcome, Liverpool

What Is We Shall Overcome?

Over the weekend of 2nd/3rd/4th October, a series of over 200 gigs will take place around the UK with the purpose of uniting in the face of a government with an austerity agenda.

The gigs are to show solidarity and offer practical help to those affected by austerity policies; many are supporting local foodbanks and other projects designed to get help directly to people in need.

If you are a singer, a band, a venue, a promoter or indeed anyone willing to pitch in and get involved then please do.

There will be no central command here. Each gig will be run and promoted locally but just use ‘WE SHALL OVERCOME’ as its banner and each promoter will do what they can to promote each others events.

Over 20 events will be taking place in Liverpool, these are listed below.
