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.

We are writing you from Israel about your schedules performance here at the Israeli Opera.

Dear Plantu, We are a group of Israeli citizens, active against our government's policies of racism, apartheid and occupation. We support Palestinian civil society's call for boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) against Israeli institutions, until these Israeli policies come to an end. ( http://boycottisrael.info/node/2/ ) We have learned of your scheduled participation in the Jerusalem Book Fair/Festival. We would like to ask you to reconsider your participation, for the sake of human rights.

We are Israeli citizens, active against our government's policies of racism, occupation and apartheid. We have learned that the VU University council in Amsterdam has tried to prevent an important panel by the Palesti na forum from taking place. An Israeli citizen, Ronnie Barkan, was also scheduled to take part in the panel. This move by the University demonstrates that it has actively chosen a discriminating manner of behavior, deciding which Israeli speakers are legitimate and which are not.

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.
