Thank you #MusiciansForPalestine!
Hundreds of musicians are boycotting apartheid Israel's complicit cultural sector
Palestinians thank the hundreds of musicians endorsing our peaceful call to boycott apartheid Israel’s complicit cultural sector.
Israeli music venues, festivals and concert promoters are deeply involved in artwashing Israel’s decades-long regime of military occupation, settler-colonialism and apartheid against Indigenous Palestinians.
This summer alone, at least four artists have canceled shows in apartheid Israel. They include Big Thief, badbadnotgood and La Femme, who all canceled concerts in apartheid Tel Aviv at Barby, which celebrates Israeli forces massacring Palestinians in the besieged Gaza Strip.
Principled artists once boycotted South Africa’s apartheid regime, refusing to play Sun City. #MusiciansForPalestine carry the torch for an inspiring new generation that is enacting meaningful international solidarity with global struggles for justice and dignity.
