Gilad Atzmon - Life Must Go On - Jazza Festival for Free Gaza
Tuesday, 01 June 2010 15:58
by Gilad Atzmon

Gilad Atzmon (Hebrew: גלעד עצמון‎, born June 9, 1963) is a jazz musician, author and anti-Zionist activist who was born in Israel and currently lives in London.
"Anti-Semite is an empty signifier, no one actually can be an Anti-Semite and this includes me of course. In short, you are either a racist - which I am not - or have an ideological disagreement with Zionism... which I have."
He was born a secular Israeli Jew in Tel Aviv, and trained at the Rubin Academy of Music in Jerusalem. His service in the Israeli military convinced him Israel had become a militarized state controlled by religious extremists. In 1994, Atzmon emigrated from Israel to London, where he studied philosophy. Atzmon is an anti-Zionist who critiques Jewish identity issues and supports the Palestinian Right of Return as well as the establishment of a single state in Israel/Palestine. He is a signatory to the "Palestinians are the Priority Petition" which states “full and unconditional support of the Palestinian people is a condition sine qua non for activists to adopt.

Following Israel's maritime slaughter of defenceless and heroic humanitarian activists, Sarah Gillespie and myself will be donating our earnings from this week's concerts at Pizza Express Jazz Club (3-5/6), to the Free Gaza organisation

The victims of the massacre will not be the last to spill their blood for Palestine, but they will never be forgotten.

I also use this opportunity to announce that Sarah and myself together with Free GAZA are putting together a massive music festival  in support of Free Palestine. The ‘Jazza Festival’ will take place in London in October. Some major artists are already lined up.

In case the Israelis do not understand it yet. Humanism  will prevail!!!

To book a seat for Sarah's  concert (3rd June)  or my concerts (4th-5th June) call the following number:  0845 6027 017
