Khader Adnan's Hunger Strike
by David Rovics
Khader Adnan's current hunger strike, presumably to the death, is more than a little reminiscent of the IRA hunger strikes of 1981.
 
As, no doubt, the Israeli occupation of Palestine is more than a little reminiscent of the British occupation of Ireland, most particularly during the Troubles.
 
Here's a song I just wrote.

 

 
"Khader Adnan, Bobby Sands"

SONGBOOK VOLUME II

Last week I finished making a PDF file containing most of the songs I wrote since 2005 (that is, most of the songs I wrote since I put out the last edition of my songbook). This songbook is just lyrics and chords, no sheet music. I'll send it to you as an email attachment if you ask nicely. (Donations very welcome, but not required.)

SPRING TOUR OF EUROPE

I've got a couple gigs in the USA (tonight at the Olympia Ballroom, 2/29 at AJ's in Ferndale, Michigan) then I fly off to Belfast to begin a 2-1/2 month tour of Europe, zigging and zagging back and forth between Ireland, England, Scotland, Wales, Germany, Denmark, Switzerland, the Netherlands, Belgium, Norway and probably Sweden, too. Most of it is booked, but there are still plenty of free dates for all of those countries if anybody out there feels inspired to organize another gig for me somewhere else! I'll include the tour details below, as they stand now, in the hopes you'll share them with your friends who may live in one of these places... The most up-to-date gig list can always be found at www.davidrovics.com and also on my 2012 Europe Tour Facebook Note:
