Due to lockdown, this is a belated World AIDS Day event but World AIDS Day should really be 365 days a year until the original mission of ACT UP is done – access to healthcare for all.

Government inaction has caused millions of deaths throughout the global AIDS pandemic and we don’t want to see the same greed and inequality happen continue in the Corona pandemic.

At the same time everyone who has lived through stigma or hasn’t been able to access healthcare should stand together and ‘Remember the Dead – Fight for the Living’ and fight for the National Health Service ‘Until there is Healthcare for All’.

United in Anger: A History of ACT UP is a 2012 documentary film directed by Jim Hubbard about the beginning and progress of the AIDS activist movement from the perspective of the people fighting the epidemic. Archival footage with oral histories of members of ACT UP depicts the history of civil disobedience against corporate greed, social indifference, and government negligence in the face of AIDS. Producers Jim Hubbard and Sarah Schulman created a documentary film that captures the efforts of ACT UP to remove the stigma associated with AIDS, fast track experimental drug research and testing, and provide a context for the devastating effects of the epidemic. Film includes several actions by ACT UP: Seize Control of the FDA, Stop the Church and Day of Desperation.

ACT UP London is a diverse, non-partisan group of individuals united in anger and committed to direct action to end the HIV pandemic, along with the broader inequalities and injustices that perpetuate it.

And in a time of continuing stigma, silence, and isolation, we combat discrimination against and promote the visibility and leadership of those living with HIV and AIDS.

Remembering that HIV & AIDS is foremost a political crisis, as well as a medical emergency, we will use every means possible to call out and contain this pandemic.

We are STILL not silent.
