Palestine fundraiser in Swansea Sept 24th

David Rovics will be playing a fund-raiser for Palestinian Political Prisoners in Swansea this month. The US folk singer is coming to The Garage (Uplands) on Monday 24th.

David Rovics (http://davidrovics.com) lives in Portland, Oregon and tours regularly on four continents, playing for audiences large and small at cafes, pubs, universities, churches, union halls and protest rallies. He has shared the stage with a veritable who's who of the left in two dozen countries, and has had his music featured on Democracy Now!, BBC, Al-Jazeera and other networks. He has written over 20 songs on Palesitne, from 'Rachel Corrie' and 'Jenin' to the 'Occupation' and 'The Mavi Marmara'. He will be supported by Andy Jones, who, as a member of Boys from the Hill also played in the refugee camps of Palestine, a political poet, The Granarchist and a young up and coming local singer 'Ciara'. DJs will play World Music until late. The proceeds will be donated to Addameer Palestinian Prisoner and Human Rights Organisation.
