Rhythms of Resistance: Israeli Apartheid Week 2012 Social Night

March 18 @ 12:00 am

Students for Justice in Palestine UTS and Students For Palestine at Macquarie University both invite you to celebrate Palestine at a music and cultural night during Israeli Apartheid Week. Be moved by powerful spoken word, hip hop with a conscience, the lovely sounds of the Oud, the flute, anti-occupation indie rock music, join an energetic dabke line, hear about apartheid from a South African activist, network with Palestinian activists and more. Arab food and sweets will be available on the night. This is going to be one heck of a night.
We come bearing the olive branch in one hand, and the freedom fighter’s mic in the other.” – Students for Justice in Palestine
