Pete Doherty to perform in protest

by Ross Purdie | 29 September 2004

The estranged Libertine will play alongside his rumoured new love, Massive Attack vocalist Dot Allison, on Sunday 17th October, following a street demo against George Bush and the ongoing occupation of Iraq.

Asian Dub Foundation will support the pair on the night, performing their new soundtrack to the classic anti-imperialist film 'The Battle Of Algiers'.

The open-air gig will bring to a close four days of workshops, discussions and other awareness activities put on by anti-war and anti-capitalist groups, including War On Want, Love Music Hate Racism, and Ethical Threads.

On the Saturday night (16th October) an anti-fascism gig will be held in the London Astoria, featuring Billy Bragg, Lady Sovereign, Skitz & Rodney P, as well as former Clash guitarist Mick Jones' new band Carbon/Silicon.

The packed programme of protest activities will also feature the first showing of Ken Loach's directors' cut of his film 'Bread And Roses', a rap, racism and resistance rally headed by So Solid Crew's Asher D, and talks by Tony Benn, George Galloway and many others.
