Dear Democracy Now! Visitor: We are an independent, ad-free daily news program that serves millions of viewers and listeners each month. Our show is special because we make it our priority to go where the silence is. We put a spotlight on corporate and government abuses of power and lift up the stories of ordinary people working to make change in extraordinary times. We do all of this with just a fraction of the budget and staff of a commercial news show. We do it without ads, corporate sponsorship or government funding. How is this possible? Only with your support. If every visitor to this site in December gave just $10 we could cover our basic operating costs for 2016. And, today a generous funder will match your donation dollar for dollar. That means when you give $10 today, your donation will be worth $20. Pretty exciting, right? Please do your part today. It takes just a couple of minutes to make sure that Democracy Now! is there for you and everybody else in 2016.

Jewish Musicians Against the Israeli Occupation

June 07, 2002

Well, today we are talking about cultural resistance. And we are joined by two musicians who have chosen to make a political statement as artists, to define themselves as American Jews against the occupation of Palestine. Stefany Anne Golberg and Myla Goldberg (no relation to each other) are members of the Galerkin Method, the band we have been hearing today. This week, which marks the 35th anniversary of the 1967 war and occupation of Palestine, they have chosen to hold an event against the occupation. It will take place in New York at Galapagos Artspace in Brooklyn at 9 on Saturday.


  • Stefany Anne Golberg, vocalist and dulcimer player for the Galerkin Method. She organized Saturday’s event in Brooklyn, Jewish Musicians Against Israeli Occupation.
  • Myla Goldberg, accordion player for the Galerkin Method. She is also the author of the best-selling novel, ??The Bee Season.
