arise! is a poem by Paul Summers, published to celebrate the rich history and traditions of the Durham Miners’ Gala and the resurgent spirit of socialism in the Labour Party.
It's wonderful to see the proud history of the Durham Miners' Gala represented in this powerful poem. Paul Summers has managed to capture the spirit of the Miners' Gala and its central place in our movement's mission to achieve 'victory for the many, and not the few' - Jeremy Corbyn, leader of the Labour Party.
We want to make a filmpoem of arise! as aDVD for the labour movement, and we need to raise a minimum of £1500 to make it. If you can you make a small donation, go here.
