An Open Letter to the Pixies


March 1, 2010
Dear Pixies,
We are a group of Israeli human rights activists. We heard through the media that you are planning a concert in Israel in June. As much as some of us are huge fans and would love to hear your show, we won't cross the international picket line that is growing in numbers steadily nowadays to come and see you.

Dear Prof. Jessica Benjamin,

We, the undersigned, Jewish and Palestinian citizens of Israel, heard with great dismay about your plan to visit Israel and give talks in Israeli Universities. Being familiar with your engagement in the feminist movement and with your feminist critique of power relations, we urge you to reconsider your visit and cancel your planned lectures in Israeli institutions.

Dear Leonard Cohen,
We are Jews, Palestinians, Israeli citizens, who hold your poetry and music in high esteem, and it is because of this respect for your artistic contributions and your moral Buddhist commitment to "save all beings" that we hope that our appeal to you to cancel your planned performance in Israel will not fall on deaf ears.
