We, Palestinians, Jews, citizens of Israel, join the Palestinian call for a BDS campaign against Israel, inspired by the struggle of South Africans against apartheid. We also call on others to do the same.
We are devoted to the promotion of just peace and true democracy in this region. We are particularly opposed to Western governments' decision to boycott the Palestinians in the Occupied Palestinian Territories, most especially in besieged Gaza. This is particularly outrageous given the same Western governments' prolonged support of Israel's apartheid and other daily violations of international law.
Sharing cultural values starts with sharing human values – Why Batsheva Dance is not welcome in the Netherlands.
A coalition of Dutch organizations and members of Dutch civil society urges the Israëli dance group Batsheva to cancel its performances in Amsterdam (9-10 January 2015). As a prominent representative of a brutal regime and its 'Brand Israel'-campaign, the group is not welcome in the Netherlands. Batsheva's role is at home, ensuring the occupation as a key issue in the upcoming elections.
Please do not support apartheid, racism and occupation - Please do not welcome Avigdor Lieberman in Prague!
From Israeli citizens: Please say NO to Batsheva and Israeli Apartheid Propaganda! We are Israeli citizens who are active against our government’s policies of racism, apartheid and occupation towards the Palestinian people. In particular, many of us are veteran activists in the campaign against Israel’s illegal colonization and settlement construction in the occupied West Bank.

Dear Sir/Madam We are citizens of Israel opposed to our government’s policies of colonization, racism, military occupation, ethnic cleansing and apartheid against the Palestinian people. It has come to our attention that the National Theatre of Oslo has accepted an invitation by the Union of Theatres of Europe to participate in a collaboration with Israel's Habima Theatre, titled “TERRORisms”.
