All proceeds to Medical Aid for Palestinians & European Legal Support Center

An evening of live music and solidarity with Palestinians under attack in Gaza and Occupied Palestine, raising money for the vital work of Medical Aid For Palestinians and the European Legal Support Center.

We have gathered a broad selection of artists and speakers, showcasing not just diverse musical styles but also the broadness and diversity of our collective sense of solidarity with Palestinians.

Each speaker has been asked to bring at least one action for you to take outside of your donation to MAP and ELSC. This event will not seek to tell you the news, it will ask you to help change it.

All communities, ethnic, religious and otherwise, are welcome.

The total number of people killed has exceeded 30,000… This is carnage

– UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, Volker Türk. February 29th, 2024.*

Around 1.7 million Gazans have been displaced from their homes – half of them children.**

The entire population of Gaza is at risk of famine. ***

This fundraiser is an expression of solidarity and a practical response to the urgent need of Gazans still being bombarded by the Israeli military.

Why we must support  Medical Aid For Palestinians

MAP’s permanent team in Gaza were among the first to respond by releasing more than US$570,000 worth of stocks of drugs, medical supplies, and other humanitarian aid to hospitals and shelters.

MAP is now procuring additional supplies of medical and other essential items and delivering these to Gaza through the Rafah crossing. They have so far delivered $2.5 million USD worth of medical items, including antibiotics, ultrasound gels, intravenous paracetamol, and saline.

Why we must support the European Legal Support Center

The European Legal Support Center (ELSC) is an independent organization defending and empowering the Palestine solidarity movement in Europe and the UK through legal means. They provide free legal advice and assistance to associations, human rights NGOs, groups and individuals advocating for Palestinian rights in mainland Europe and the United Kingdom.
