Up until now we've been stunned by the impact-full onset of Corona Virus/restrictions which unlike all, have had a serious negative impact on our campaign, then George Floyd and I can't Breath, and so many things suddenly make a lot more sense. It doesn't change who we are, and why we keep doing it. Until we see real change.
In this light and by any means, on YouTube, Facebook, Instagram, we've been sharing some of our glorious achievements and other special moments over the weeks, at times reflecting on our truth of the matter, coming to terms with our enemies and associated barriers to our sense of freedom. Moments like with Muneera Williams, who confidently predicted a Riot.

Side by side we invite the world to a a serious of interactions which will at times help rescue life or the very planet. Zed Regal has been doing his Facebook show, spreading infectious (sorry) poetic ideas and will soon be doing UJIMA radio. Princess Emmanuelle is still doing Poetry 4 Grenfell but now online. We're connected with Redfest 2020, due August 1st. And look out for Refugee Festival 2020.
As an online entity, UWC considers alternative narratives and perspectives. So many disbelieving the mainstream outlets (which is tragic), a bit like that ancient song, we are determined that we'll overcome, some day, as people now take some matters entirely into their own hands.
We we're definitively raising our our profile before Lock-down, so the timing was disastrous but we hope these few links will help to feed your spirit.
