Make a musical stand against racism - Friday at the Limelight

RACISM has bedevilled recent weeks with its ugly head raised and manifested in sickening attacks against those who have come to Northern Ireland to work and live. It's time to say "no more" and this Friday (June 20th) at The Limelight you can make a stand.

The Limelight is hosting a 'Rock Against Racism' event, with all proceeds going to the Northern Ireland Council for Ethnic Minorities.

Headlining are 'And So I Watch You From Afar' and The Answer will be performing an acoustic set. Also on the bill are Mojo Fury, General Fiasco (also with an acoustic set), Kasper Rosa and Empty Lungs, with more to be announced.

Tickets are £10 (+booking fee) and all proceeds will go to NICEM.

The promoters state: "This gig will help raise funds for what is a great charity that helps those fromethnic minorites living in Northern Ireland.

"This is a non religious, non partisan event designed to offer support and as a show of solidarity with those from other cultures living across the country."

Racism is sickening, racism is a display of ignorance and intolerance, racism has never had a place in rock, metal or punk - racism is something we all, can make a stand against it and show the idiots, the bigots and the evil perpetrators that music is a weapon we can wield against you.
