You turn to Democracy Now! for ad-free news you can trust. Maybe you come for our daily headlines. Maybe you come for in-depth stories that expose corporate and government abuses of power. Democracy Now! brings you crucial reporting like our coverage from the front lines of the Dakota Access pipeline protests or news about this unprecedented US presidential election—and our coverage is never paid for by the oil and gas companies or the campaigns and superPACs. We produce our daily news hour at a fraction of the budget of a commercial news operation—all without ads, government funding or corporate sponsorship. How? This model of news depends on your support. Today, less than 1% of our visitors support Democracy Now! with a donation each year. If even 3% of our website visitors donated just $8 per month, we could cover our basic operating expenses for a year. Pretty amazing right?

Jewish Musicians Against the Israeli Occupation

June 07, 2002
Story
WATCH FULL SHOW

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.

Guests:

  • 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.
