The event, which will feature a wide range of performers, guest speakers and poetry, will take place at the Niamos Theatre on Wednesday 20 December and raise vital funds for humanitarian aid on the ground in Gaza, with all proceeds to be donated to Medical Aid For Palestinians.
The announcement of the show confirmed performances from the band WITCH FEVER and Shrill Carder, with the full line-up to be announced soon.
'Music For A Ceasefire' was launched following the commencement of the Israeli bombardment of Gaza which has now taken the lives of over 18,000 civilians, leaving the Palestinian health authority at breaking point and over half of the population of Gaza starving. The humanitarian effort on the ground has been extensive but many innocent aid workers, journalists and medical staff have been caught up in the collective punishment of the Palestinian people.
The Peace & Justice Project continues to call for a permanent ceasefire in Gaza and an end to the illegal Israeli occupation of Palestine.
