A revolt occurring (7)


I believe the answer is:


'occurring' is the definition.
(arising is a kind of occurring)

'a revolt' is the wordplay.
'revolt' becomes 'rising' ('rising' can be a synonym of 'revolt').

(Other definitions for arising that I've seen before include "Coming up for discussion" , "Stemming from like committee matters, or getting up" , "Emerging" , "occurring" , "becoming manifest" .)

I've seen this clue in The Telegraph.
