The Palestinian Campaign for Academic & Cultural Boycott of Israel called on the BBC, songwriters and performers to withdraw from the 2019 Eurovision Song Contest hosted by Israel, to avoid being complicit in Israel’s ongoing violations of Palestinian human rights.
We call on people to boycott events livestreaming Eurovision and instead Watch GlobalVision.

Why Eurovision 2019 should be boycotted
Israel overtly uses arts and culture to whitewash or justify its apartheid regime over the Palestinian people. Just as South African anti-apartheid activists had called on cultural institutions and artists to culturally boycott South Africa, PSC supports The Palestinian Campaign for the Academic and Cultural Boycott of Israel (PACBI) urging international cultural workers and institutions to boycott Israeli apartheid. The call for a cultural boycott of Israel is part of the call from over 180 Palestinian civil society organisations which calls on the international community to Boycott, Divest and Sanction (BDS) Israel as a peaceful means to urge Israel to comply with international law and the basic principle of human rights.
Inspired by the South African anti-apartheid movement, the Palestinian BDS call urges nonviolent pressure on Israel until it complies with international law by meeting three demands:
- Israel to end their colonisation and occupation of all Palestinian land occupied in June 1967, to dismantle the apartheid wall and to lift the siege of Gaza.
- Recognising the fundamental rights for Palestinian citizens of Israel to full equality.
- Respecting, protecting and promoting the right of Palestinian refugees to return to their homes.
