la gente se está levantando
Explanation:
Hi!
You don't give any context at all so it's really hard to get a grasp on what this is about. Is it an uprising?...or is it a phrase something like: "It's 7:00 a.m. and the people are getting up"?

Any my friend, this is the best I can do without more context.

Luck:-)
