David Rovics called an anti-semite for supporting Palestine

 Who are Gilad Atzmon and Matthew Heimbach, and what do they have to do with why some people are saying I’m an antisemite?  I’ll try to explain. – David Rovics

On 18 August 2010 I recorded a concert organised by Justice for Palestine (Meanjin) at the Electrical Trade Union building in South Brisbane.
⁠ David Rovics sang and spoke in favour of the Boycotts Divestments and Sanctions campaign against Israel.

On an environmental note Rovics sang a variation of an old standard ‘Laissez les bon temps rouler‘ (Let the good times roll).

The song tells the story of the explosion on BP oil rig off the coast of Louisiana that killed eleven (11) workers and resulted in the worst environmental disaster in US history (to date). “Laissez les Bon Temps Rouler” is about the dislocation of the Cajun community resulting from that event.

Witness Rovic’s savage satire singing that night ten years ago about the BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico (apologies for the quality of the recording):
