Initiative setup by Rainbow Collective in response over a million people using food banks in the UK. At these film events, audience members bring a bag of non perishable food instead of paying for a ticket for entry to the event. The food gets donated to the food bank.

Despite McDonald’s being one of the UK’s largest, most profitable, and globally recognised employers, its employees are subjected to difficult, yet avoidable working conditions - working on insecure zero-hour contracts for low-wages. Since 2018 Rainbow Collective have been collaborating with War On Want to produce all McStrikes campaign videos. Click HERE to watch the videos. 

Rainbow Collective are campaigning alongside War on Want for the rights of the Palestinian citizens following the most recent attacks from Israel under their 'Operation Protective Edge' which has killed over 1,400 Palestinians and injured many more - with those numbers increasing daily.

 

On behalf of War on Want we have created a number of campaign videos and are actively protesting on behalf of the Palestinians by taking part in the demonstrations being organised across London.
