Women at Lowie Live Presents Benefit gig: Folks Artist for Palestine/Naarm

Location

225 Nicholson Street
Brunswick East VIC 3057
Australia



A night of music and song from the Irish and American folk traditions to raise funds, awareness and promote action for Palestinian and First Nations struggles.




American and Old Time acts including Charlotte Lelievre, The Double Dole String Band and Cat and Clint, will be joined by Melbourne Irish traditional music stalwarts like Maggie Carty, Aoife Dermody, Jamie Molloy and Corey Romero, to raise much-needed funds and awareness for Palestinian and First Nations struggles.


Folk and traditional music is music of the people. It is the expression of the stories and hopes of oppressed communities, of people on the ground, of those without wealth and power. The Irish traditional and folk music communities in Naarm observe with deepest
admiration the solidarity between First Peoples and Palestinian peoples, and following their lead will donate all funds raised to:


1) The Australia Palestine Advocacy Network (www.apan.org.au), who are undertaking crucial work in pushing the Australian government to work against, rather than support the genocide of the Palestinian people, as well as to


2) Native Title Rockets is a campaign led by Senior Kokatha Elder Aunty Sue Haseldine to stop rocket testing over Kokatha women’s sacred sites on the Far West Coast, SA. International defence and weapons companies are testing electronic warfare satellites and hypersonic missiles on Kokatha country.
