DAVID ROVICS, Honorary Citizen of Palestine to play at Palestinian Prisoner' Fundraiser in Swansea

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.

  1. A portion of the members were obviously unconscious of the way that there is no such thing as "Palestinian citizenship," since there is no Palestinian state, and that receipt of a Palestinian travel permit would in this way not present such citizenship. Nor would such an archive really permit its holder to enter the West Bank or Gaza, since Israel, the involving power, still figures out who is allowed to wind up plainly "another" occupant of these ranges.
