When Julian Met Stella
Last night at Cafe Mir in Oslo, imprisoned journalist Julian Assange called his wife, Stella, while she was sitting in the audience, and we sang for him.
Last night at Cafe Mir in Oslo, imprisoned journalist Julian Assange called his wife, Stella, while she was sitting in the audience, and we sang for him. Stella serendipitously happened to be in Oslo on the same day we were performing there, to accept the Ossietzky Prize from PEN Norway, on behalf of Julian, who obviously couldn't be there himself.
Saturday night will be the last one Kamala and I are together on this Ceasefire Tour. We'll be in Amsterdam from Friday night through Sunday morning -- and we're available to sing at any protests there on Saturday, in case that information is relevant for anyone!
But either way, we thought we'd do a little house concert Saturday evening for the internet along with a small handful of local guests, with a focus on songs about Palestine and the broader "War on Terror" rhetoric that the genocidal killers running the Israeli fascist regime are continually drawing on in an effort to justify their crimes against humanity and maintain the support of the imperial powers of the west that the western media euphemistically calls "the international community."
We'll be broadcasting on Twitch as well as on X, Facebook, and YouTube. The show will be live on Saturday, November 18th at 11 am Pacific Time, 2 pm Eastern Time, 7 pm in London, 8 pm Central European Time, and it'll be archived on my YouTube channel and elsewhere for posterity.
