Boycott Songs

BOYCOTT SONGS (songs to boycott by)

Our Settlement House Real estate giant RE/MAX is buying and selling illegal homes in occupied territory. Somebody’s got to do it, right? Wrong.

Swift-Leviev Medley Taylor Swift sported apartheid/child soldier jewelry from Leviev on the cover of Vanity Fair. Seemed more vain than fair, so I rounded up a couple of romantic tunes plus an old standby, Hava Nagila.

Boycott G4S – It’s Easy As A-B-C G4S claims to be in the security business. But actually they increase insecurity, first for Palestinians, then for Israel, which is burying itself under a pile of lies and expropriations of other peoples’ lands. What time is it? Time to boycott, divest, divorce, cancel, and condemn.

Star of Goliath Song cycle with images: History of Palestine/Israel, with reflections from 2004 visit. 25 min. Remixed 2015.

Round Table, Ciao Israel is gathering chefs to food-wash apartheid. No, no, no: Gastro-diplomacy is hasbaracracy. More info here.

Killing Them Softly  Lauryn Hill needs new advisers. Crossing a legit picket line to play for apartheid, that ain’t it.

Friends of the IDF, Ciao Seriously? The gang that raises money for the gang that steals Palestine has a 501C3?

City Council Don’t Go   New York City Councilors are planning to visit an apartheid state to increase business, educational, and cultural ties. Guess which one? Hint: they train our cops to stop, frisk, and shoot to kill.

More Dead and Gaza Moans Israel periodically “mows the lawn,” as they themselves call massacres, to demoralize Gaza, while spinning insulting stories about their motives. It makes things even worse, right? Time to cut aid and boycott yet? Not yet? When, then?

Some Christmas songs about Hewlett-Packard’s nefarious technology of domination in occupied Palestine:
God Rest Ye HP O Little Town of HP
Hewlett-Packard’s Coming To Town

Shekels, Shekels, Shekels

Amazing Grace, Palestine – two versions: a cappella in Berkeley and with guitar in Seattle.

This Food’s Not Your Food Sometimes Israelis like to claim various foods as their own invention when in fact they were there in the neighborhood for, let’s say, millenia. I wouldn’t care except that erasing a people’s culture is an integral part of ethnic cleansing, which has been proceeding apace since, oh let’s say, 1948.

A Show Called Dig Some wags at NBC think it’s a thrill to set a thriller on stolen land without mentioning the theft. Well you’ll never find the criminal that way. Some friends went to give the wags a wag of the finger.

Human Rights Man – video  Stones are rolling downhill into shameful complicity with settler colonial criminality. Audio only here

This Boycott Was Made For You and Me (video) From non-union grapes to segregated buses to apartheid, we’ve always voted with our wallets. Audio only here

Ode to Soda Stream Alteration of Earth Day anthem, since Earth Day’s been altered by “green” Soda Stream – but guess what, E-Day has cut SS off! Go Green, not Apartheid!
