Rock Against Racism gig to raise funds for equality group

By Amanda Ferguson

Musicians from across Northern Ireland will be rocking against racism at the Limelight in Belfast tomorrow after a surge in attacks on ethnic minorities.

And So I Watch You From Afar, The Answer, Mojo Fury, General Fiasco, Kasper Rose and Empty Lungs are among the acts taking to the stage from 7pm tomorrow. The gig is for over 18s only and tickets cost £10.

All proceeds will be given to the Northern Ireland Council for Ethnic Minorities (NICEM).

Organisers have described the concert as a "non-religious, non-partisan event" designed to offer support and as a show of solidarity with those from other cultures living here.

Helena Macormac from NICEM said: "This is a very timely event given recent high profile incidents such as the much reported racist banners that appeared outside our board member Michael Abiona's house.

"We are delighted by the level of support shown to NICEM and the minority communities we represent by positive initiatives such as the recent 8,000 strong March Against Racism and this Friday's Rock Against Racism event."

Tickets for the event are available at Ticketmaster.
