Palestinian activists from Vpalestine team argue the artist Sean Tyas to cancel his performance in “Israel” this Thursday.
This has come up in order to bring attention to the importance of the the artistic boycott.
Israel overtly uses culture and art as a form of propaganda to whitewash or justify its regime of occupation, settler-colonialism and apartheid over the Palestinian people, So the activists call on international artists, writers and cultural institutions to culturally boycott Israel.
It is worth mentioning that thousands of artists across the world now refuse to perform in Israel.
Here are some of the team’s comments:
Plz don't go to entertain mass murderers &oppressors. Stand with the oppressed #Palestinians.

Don't entertain the apartheid Israel. Israel uses arts to cover up their crimes.
