An Open Letter to Boris Johnson and to the British Public, from Israeli Citizens Who Support Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) against Israel
From Israeli citizens to Madrid City Council Representatives,
Lettre ouverte au Directeur de l’Opéra de Paris,
Monsieur le Directeur,
Nous citoyens israéliens, nous vous demandons de dire NON à Batsheva et à la propagande israélienne. Nous sommes engagés contre la politique raciste, d’apartheid et d’occupation de notre gouvernement à l’encontre du peuple palestinien. Nous combattons depuis longtemps la colonisation illégale en Cisjordanie.
We are Israeli citizens, active against our government's policies of racism, occupation, and Apartheid. One year ago, nearly two thousand people were massacred by the Israeli army in Gaza, including 500 children. Four boys in Gaza were torn apart by Israeli missiles as they were playing football on the beach in Gaza.
(Sept 2014) To whom it may concern, and especially to The Michael Cacoyannis Foundation
We are Israeli citizens active against our country's policies of occupation, colonialism and apartheid. We are appalled to hear of the decision by the Thessaloniki Book Fair to make Israel its “guest of honor”.
On july 9 2005, the Palestinian Boycott National Committee (BNC) issued its unified call for Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions from Israel, demanding full rights for Palestinians.
It is particularly troubling that the Cape Town Opera House decided to perform in Tel Aviv, with no other play than Porgy and Bess.
As the opera did not heed Desmond Tutu's call to cancel the show, a group of Israeli BDS supporters decided to emancipate the songs on opening night.
