We are planning a re-launch of HUFP under the name ‘Hands Up…’

Over August we will be redesigning the website and modifying our protest process, to create an ongoing mechanism through which young people can express their voices about politics and current affairs under the umbrella of the ‘Hands Up’ organisation. We would like to get more young people involved in talking about issues that affect them, and hopefully to not only highlight important subjects and events as they occur but to work with young people in schools to talk about how politics can be relevant to their lives. We hope to provide the media with structures for contacting politically aware young people around Britain (and maybe further a field) who will be able to speak and debate on issues that affect them.

Check back for developments at the end of August, by which time we should be up and running again, and in the mean time email us at handsupforpeace@hotmail.com or hands_up_for@hotmail.com if you are a young person who would like to become involved, a student or teacher interested in the creation of an ‘alternative citizenship’ workshop, or a journalist interested in following our re-launch.

We hope to re-launch officially on October 24th, (although this date will be confirmed nearer to the time) with a London-based gallery exhibition of some of the hands from the anti-war campaign and a brief discussion of our new direction. Please contact us if you would be interested in attending.
