Declan Welsh is a songwriter and poet from Glasgow. With his band, The Decadent West they create music that is unapologetic, direct and with a message of humanity.

This year, Declan traveled to Palestine to witness the occupation and show solidarity with the Palestinian people. While there, he played a set at Bethlehem Live, performing new single 'No Pasaran' with an orchestra of refugee children. A group of amazing and inspiring Palestinian individuals took Declan around the west bank and in the process was tear gassed by the IDF at a protest.

'No Pasaran' is a song about standing up to fascism. The word gets chucked about a lot, but in the face of several xenophobic, far right, nationalist electoral successes in Europe and America, the time for us to stand up and be counted.
