Naji al-Ali: A Tribute

This event explores the remarkable power and influence of al-Ali's work, with contributions from the Guardian cartoonist Steve Bell and Karma Nabulsi (University of Oxford) and coupled with a performance of selected songs by Reem (accompanied by Bruno Heinen on electric piano).

Naji al-Ali was shot by unknown assailants outside the offices of al-Qabas, a Kuwaiti newspaper, in London and died five weeks later in August 1997.

London
"I'm playing an intimate #GiveaHome show with @amnesty and @sofarsounds in a secret location on September 20th this year in support of the world's refugees, accompanied by the wonderful Al MacSween on electric piano.

My parents suffered as refugees twice: once, in 1948, after Israel's creation, and second, in 1990, after the Iraqi invasion of Kuwait. I will always be grateful that Kuwait and later Jordan took them in and allowed them to build their lives there. Those who leave their homes to seek refuge in a foreign land mostly pay a terrible price, yearning for a homeland to which they may never return. May we never shut our doors to people seeking refugee in their moment of crisis."
