About ACT UP LONDON – http://www.actuplondon.wordpress.com

In 2014, activist group ACT UP UK re-formed to help put HIV/AIDS back on the political agenda. Cuts to services, rising transmission levels, and the common mistaken belief that HIV was resolved in the 1980s have led some to name this current phase of the epidemic the ‘HIV Second Silence’. ACT UP London believes that in the context of vicious cuts to public health, and the co-option of both LGBTQ and migrant bodies into discourses of racism, we are at a critical moment for raising awareness and mobilising people around HIV/AIDS issues. ACT UP London collaborates with other groups including STOPAIDS, Positively UK and a loose coalition of activist groups.

ACT UP London creatively campaigns and takes direct action to help end the HIV / AIDS pandemic – here are some examples of our actions.
