Meeting to discuss the need for cultural boycott and plan protesting the Batsheva Dance Company who are performing as part of a UK tour at the Lowry Theatre Salford on the
2nd and 3rd of November.
Thursday 25th October 7pm
Friends Meeting House
Mount Street Manchester
This is part of our involvement in the International cultural boycott campaign of the state of Israel.
We all enjoy international cultural events which showcase the very best of world music, dance & theatre. We wouldn’t be protesting if these were independent Israeli artists; we target artistic institutions which are intrinsically linked to the Israeli State through funding and the ‘Brand Israel’ initiative, the aim of which is to create a positive image of Israel internationally by promoting Israeli culture through artists and groups.
Batsheva and Brand Israel.
The Batsheva Dance company is signed up to Brand Israel which is part of a wider campaign to whitewash Israel’s many human rights abuses and violations of international law, creating the image of a ‘normally’ functioning democratic country.
Come to the meeting and help plan this protest action.
