Free Gaza

The
Free Gaza
Art Festival


:: Thank you for participating in the Free Gaza Art Festival ::

(August 16, 2009) Thanks, the Art Festival was fun and there is a lot of artwork that came together. It is over now

:: Welcome to the Free Gaza Art Festival ::

(Last Update July 17, 2009) This page is dedicated to the nonviolent Free Gaza Movement, www.freegaza.org that challenges the unjust siege of Gaza. The Free Gaza Art Festival is the successor of the Free Gaza Song Contest.

Everybody who has a contribution can send it to anis at anis-online.de. Every kind of art is possible: paintings, drawings, sculptures, videos, photos, collages, poetry, literature, music, dance, land art, anything that is clearly related to Free Gaza and that can be shown online. You can, of course, still submit versions of the FREE GAZA SONG.

Lyrics and Chords ::

FREE GAZA SONG

(Chords: D, A, G, F#)

Free Gaza, Free Free Gaza, Free Gaza, sail your boat ashore
Free Gaza, Free Free Gaza, Free Gaza, sail your boat ashore

1) With a boat to break the siege people waiting on the beach,
grab the first one in your reach and teach them the Gaza song:

Free Gaza, Free Free Gaza, Free Gaza, sail your boat ashore

2) Bishop Tutu has endorsed, he don't want no violent force
"Through the barrel of a gun", he says, "peace can never be won".

(F#) Tell me what you think of freedom, tell me what you think of love, love, love

Tell your maza, Free Free Gaza, Free Gaza, sail your boat ashore

3) Now you learned to sing the song, get on board and sing along,
open up and in some time you can add a little rhyme

Free Gaza, Free Free Gaza, Free Gaza, sail your boat ashore

4) I want everybody to be free everybody every you and me
Sing a song of solidarity, sing the Gaza song:

Free Gaza, Free Free Gaza, Free Gaza, (G) sail your boat ashore

GAZA ON MY MIND

1) You got your best shirt on and you're looking fine / D
but there's something wrong for a long long time / e
cause I got Gaza on my mind and you tell me why / A D (G A)

2) You got some crazy friends and a speedy car
and you like to be a superstar
only I got Gaza on my mind and you tell me why

Alright, everybody knows it / D G
Hold tight, come on and show it / D G
it's time that someone talks to me, talk to me, talk to me / D G

3) You got a whole lotta walls all around your place
I can't hear you move and I can't see your face
but I got Gaza on my mind and you tell me why

4) You say it's all about a security risk
and you don't read no Chomsky, you don't read no Fisk
and I got Gaza on my mind and you tell me why.

Alright, everybody knows it
Hold tight, come on and show it
it's time that someone talks to me, talk to me, talk to me

5) Everybody out there how can it be
that a people is held in custody
it means it could be you and it could be me, that's Gaza.

6) Tell me how it is now, how will it be,
why can't my brothers and sisters be free
I got Gaza on my mind and you tell me why.

Alright, everybody knows it
Hold tight, come on and show it
it's time that someone talks to me, talk to me, talk to me
