It’s three years since the first Govanhill Festival took inspiration from the Rock Against Racism (RAR) movement hosted Roots, Rock, Reggae Against Racism in Queen’s Park bandstand with Aswad, Misty in Roots, Black Roots and more.
Glasgow Love Music Hate Racism (LMHR) has since taken its own inspiration from that momentous movement as a new generation forges unity through the power of music in the struggle against racism and the rise of the far right.
This summer racist thugs unleashed violence on our streets. The terrible incident at the Park Inn Hotel shone a light on the conditions created for refugees by the UK government’s hostile environment. We need unity more than ever to ensure that black lives and refugee lives matter.
Glasgow LMHR and Modern Films will screen Rubika Shah’s award-winning film White Riot, documenting the RAR movement and its 1978 Carnival Against The Nazis, plus a panel discussion with the director, home grown RAR punks and special guests. The night concludes with a special LMHR Living Room afterparty.
