An anti-racism protest rave is set to take place next month through the streets of Central London, HOUSE AGAINST HATE.

HOUSE AGAINST HATE takes place on Saturday, March 16, as part of the United Nations Anti-Racism Day calling for “the UK establishment to STOP THE HATE”.

The “mobile protest” is organised by R3 Soundsystem and Black Artist Database, with support from Stand Up To Racism UK, Love Music Hate Racism, and HOMO-CENTRIC Records.

“On 16th March 2024, R3 Soundsystem‘s HOUSE AGAINST HATE mobile protest unit will be hitting the streets of London along with thousands of demonstrators,” announced GIDEÖN, one of the artists set to perform, on Instagram.

The protest is set up to fight against the “racist, xenophobic, transphobic, anti-immigrant, pro-Israel contingent in the UK establishment,” he adds.

HOUSE AGAINST HATE has enlisted artists from all over the UK and beyond, including The Blessed Madonna, Hot Chip, NIKS, Eliza Rose, Jamz Supernova,Leon Vynehall, A Guy Called Gerald, DJ Paulette, and Shanti Celeste to perform on the day.

Donations will also be collected in support of Medical Aid For Palestinians (MAP), and protestors are encouraged to bring cash to donate.

“As the Tories ratchet up their anti-immigration rhetoric, as Trump plots his second attempt at dismantling US democracy and as Labour fail to call out Israel’s genocide, we must unite once again around our community soundsystem to protest against the global consolidation of rightwing power,” says GIDEÖN.

“Bring banners, loudhailers and friends plus everything you need to kick-start the revolution. Watch this space for location announcements.”
