Роџер Вотерс од Пинк Флојд повика на бојкот на Евровизија

Роџер Вотерс, поранешниот член на групата „Пинк Флојд“ повика на бојкот на Евровизија што оваа година ќе се одржува во Тел Авив, Израел. Тој како претставник на движењето за бојкот и санкции против Израел, повика сите учесниците „да застанат рамо до рамо со Палестинците“. Тој ги повика и Би-би-си да не го пренесува Евросонгот во Тел Авив во мај.


„Да покажеме солидарност со 189-те невооружени демонстранти кои минатата година беа убиени од израелски снајперисти, меѓу кои и 35 деца“, наведува Вотерс, повикувајќи се на податоците од независната Комисија за истрага на Обединетите нации околу протестите во Појасот Газа.

Според извештајот, 154 од убиените биле невооружени. Израелските власти ги отфрлуваат ваквите тврдења.

ARE YOU THE ONE? AN OPEN LETTER TO CONAN OSIRIS AND THE OTHER 41 FINALISTS FOR THE EUROVISION SONG CONTEST. A few days ago, I wrote a private letter to a young talented Portuguese singer, Conan Osiris. He had just won the right to represent Portugal in the @eurovision song contest final, and was reported as saying he wasn’t sure if he would go to Tel Aviv or not. I listened to his song, and then got a translation of the lyrics it was about using his cell phone to ask questions about life and death and love. It was quite deep. I was told by friends that Conan Osiris might join the vast network of artists who are heeding the Palestinian call to boycott Eurovision in apartheid Tel Aviv. So I wrote and suggested to him that here he had an opportunity to speak up for life over death and also for human rights over human wrongs. How? By standing shoulder to shoulder, with his oppressed brothers and sisters in Palestine. He could show solidarity with the 189 un-armed protestors shot to death by Israel’s snipers in Gaza last year alone, including at least 35 children. But how could our brother Conan stand up? By refusing to join the cultural whitewash of what a recent UN report calls Israel’s war crimes and possible crimes against humanity, by refraining from providing his art to art-wash Israel’s systematic ethnic cleansing of the indigenous Palestinian communities to expand and maintain its apartheid state. Conan can refuse to perform in front of the segregated audience in Tel Aviv at the Eurovision song contest finals this coming May. In my letter I explained that Eurovision could be a tipping point, I appealed to Conan to stand up and be counted. Sadly, until now, there is no reply from Conan. There is news though, reliable sources tell me that young Conan has been personally approached and persuaded to go to the finals by an organization called Creative Community for Peace (CCfP). Ahhhh! For anyone who doesn’t know, CCfP has been exposed as an offshoot of the far-right Israeli government backed propaganda organizations “Stand With Us” and “The Israel Emergency Fund”.
