In the last few days, we have been learning about the emerging unrest in Brazil. The protests began early this month in response to a rise in bus fares in São Paulo and elsewhere, but have grown rapidly into a general outpouring of discontent after widespread anger at the heavy-handed police crackdown.
In case you are perplexed by Brazil’s police violence, The Lab, a new Israeli film by Yotam Feldaman, provides the answers.
Watch the Brazilian Gaza:
The ‘numbers’ are also familiar..
The message is clear, Israel export death, in other words, we are all Palestinians
Gilad Atzmon is an Israeli-born British jazz saxophonist, novelist, political activist and writer.
Atzmon’s album Exile was BBC jazz album of the year in 2003. Playing over 100 dates a year, he has been called “surely the hardest-gigging man in British jazz.” His albums, of which he has recorded nine to date, often explore the music of the Middle East and political themes. He has described himself as a “devoted political artist.” He supports the Palestinian right of return and the one-state solution in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
His criticisms of Zionism, Jewish identity, and Judaism, as well as his controversial views on The Holocaust and Jewish history have led to allegations of antisemitism from both Zionists and anti-Zionists. A profile in The Guardian in 2009 which described Atzmon as “one of London’s finest saxophonists” stated: “It is Atzmon’s blunt anti-Zionism rather than his music that has given him an international profile, particularly in the Arab world, where his essays are widely read.”
