Dear Richard Bona
We are Israeli citizens who oppose our government's policies of apartheid, occupation and racism against the Palestinian people.
We are acting in solidarity with the Palestinian civil society's call for boycott, divestment and sanctions against Israel because of its policies, and we are asking you to join us and do the same, by postponing your performance in Israel to a time when our government respects basic principles of human rights!
Please note that Ladysmith Black Mamabazo, who were assumed to perform after you in the "World Music" series at the Tel Aviv Opera, have stated that they are not scheduled to perform here:
The reason is clear. Ladysmith Black Mambazo, as well as many prominent artists, from Africa and other continents, have realized that they should say "no" to apartheid. Please join them and support our cause!
We will gladly answer your comments or questions. You can write to us in French.
On behalf of BOYCOTT! Supporting the Palestinian BDS call from within
