After witnessing the death and devastation inflicted by Israel in its recent attacks on Gaza, and the controversial decision of the BBC and Sky not to broadcast the international appeal for aid, local bands and campaigners are rallying to the cause with a 'gig for Gaza'.Popular folk band Seize the Day will head an evening of classical, folk and popular music at the concert, to be held at the Phoenix Arts Centre, Gandy Street, Exeter on 14th March.Local businesses have also promised to help raise aid for the people of Gaza. Speciality Cakes and Cafe, in South Street, will create a large Gaza Cake, complete with Palestinian flag, whilst the New Horizon cafe, in Longbrook Street, is donating a meal for two for the winners of the evening raffle. All the businesses and musicians have agreed to contribute without pay. In addition to the entertainment, Palestinian crafts and olive oil will be on sale, and on display will be literature and video portraying recent events in Gaza. Tickets are priced at �10 or �8 (concessions) to enable as much financial aid as possible to be forwarded to relief projects in Gaza. All those who have been moved by the horrors which recently befell innocent victims in the world's biggest prison are urged to attend, and contribute to Exeter's humanitarian aid for Gaza.
