20th of January : They've Got A Bomb

Video Documentation

..The call

by mazen kerbaj

The idea so far is to hold a simultaneous concert in several cities around the world. We initially thought of linking ourselves through the internet, but it would be too complicated, especially for us here in Lebanon. As it stands, we would like to propose a first date: january 20 (also a nice date because this will be the day we will finally get rid of Bush, the biggest criminal of the XXIst century). Flyers and announcements will inculde all the events that will happen in the various cities (at the same time). Ideally the music would be recorded and put up on a website at a later date. Any profit (if any, and even if symbolic) would be sent to Palestine.

I know the time is short especially for those of you living in the modern world where everything has to be planned months in advance. But if you are motivated by this project and are free on this date, and you think you can find a venue (or any kind of place) who would agree to this and understand the special circumstances and emergency of the situation, then please let me know as fast as possible (yes I will be coordinating this as you probably guessed by now).

Finally, you are of course welcome to do this with anyone you would like or you feel should take part. Also, if you think of someone in other cities who also should be part of this please get them into the loop.

I hope we can do this and of course let's wish that by the time we get there this whole madness will be over.

Peace, Sh..

They've got a bomb!

'They've Got A Bomb' is an occasion for showing our support to victims of massive and blind bombing on Gaza, and also against the experimentation of new american weapons over disarmed populations. The new nickname of the bomb is DIME : [DIME]

The human race ( there's only one race here, 'arab' or 'african' is not a race ) is able to invent more horrors everyday...

Detta är förvisso en politisk manifestation, men ingen partipolitisk eller religiös sådan. Detta är ett tillfälle att mötas, diskutera och ha det trevligt i musikens, litteraturens och poesins tecken! På detta sätt visar vi vårt stöd för dem som lider just nu i Gaza! Vi tar ingen entré, men blir glada för frivilliga bidrag som går till Röda Korset i Palestina! Programmet startar 19.30 och slutar ca 23.00 men kom gärna tidigare och käka gott (meny finns på www.ccpuben.se) ta ett glas eller två och njut av tillvaron!:-) Observera att åldersgränsen är 18 år.

Tisdag kväll 20 januari 2009 kommer musiker, poeter, konstnärer och andra artister som en reaktion mot massakrerna i Gaza att framträda i – vad vi vet just nu - Nazaret, Malaysia, Beirut, Haifa, Lissabon, Brasilien, Paris, Chicago, Barcelona, Valpariso, Oakland CA, Lund och Gävle! Initiativet kommer från musiker i Beirut. Du som vill göra något på någon annan svensk ort, agera självständigt. Det är kort varsel. Det är kort varsel för människorna i Gaza också.

Du som läser det här - var vänlig bjud in alla dina vänner här på Facebook (och alla andra också förstås) som kanske skulle behöva ha lite trevligt en tisdagkväll! Vi skulle uppskatta den hjälpen mycket!

Detta är bara en presentation av kvällen under bearbetning och detaljer kommer att revideras. Håll utkik efter förändringar. Har ni synpunkter eller frågor så hör gärna av er på Mailen eller Facebook!

This is a coordinated simultaneous concert/event taking place in several cities around the world : Beirut, Paris, Barcelona, Stockholm, Nazareth, Valparaiso (chile), Chicago, Oakland and Los Angeles.

This is a benefit for the people of Gaza, Palestine –currently under brutal siege. All money will be donated to Gaza via the Red Cross

Here's the brief story about how and why this is happening.

Dirar Kalash is a young Palestinian musician and artist living in Haifa. He operates autonomously and is pretty much the only Palestinian guy doing music of this variety over there. Porest met Dirar Kalash through the internet a while back. He is mutual friends with Lebanese musicians and Porest / Liz Allbee cohorts Mazen Kerbaj, Raed Yassin and Sharif Sehnoui.

Dirar and Sharif contacted Porest last week about their idea to hold this worldwide event on Jan 20. We know that our music won't really rake in the bucks, but ultimately, this is also a symbolic event.

Upon searching for a venue to host the event on such short notice, (many thanks to Ben Bracken for helping make this happen at the Mindgaze Hut) we discovered that holding it on Jan 20th would be problematic, as there is much musical competition in the Bay Area that night- and also much anticipated revelry as many Americans celebrate their new president.

In the end, it made more sense to host it on the 19th. After all, it will be January 20th in Palestine while the event is in progress.

For some information regarding the Gaza situation, please visit livestation.com (download their player and watch Al Jazeera English or Press TV for decent news) and http://electronicintifada.net/
