‘Ghosts Of Deir Yassin’ by Phil Monsour with Rafeef Ziadah

Kia Ora Gaza

By Phil Monsour, Auckland, 10 April 2017

9 April marks the anniversary of the massacre in Deir Yassin, Palestine 1948 and the infamous terror that expelled 750,000 people from their homes.

Last night in Auckland, as distant from Palestine as you can get, I performed this song with Rafeef Ziadah to 350 people.

Although history will mark the day when justice is served and the refugees have their right to return to a free Palestine. The struggle along the way will be recorded by our determination to remember, the celebrations of our shared humanity and the spirit of our resistance, that filled the theatre in Auckland on 9 April 2017.
