Comedian Eddie Izzard is booked to play in Tel Aviv on March 30th.
He is known for his opposition to apartheid South Africa. He played gigs for the Anti- Apartheid Movement in the 1980s. In 2016 he ran 27 marathons in 27 days to honour the 27 years Nelson Mandela spent in prison.
He is playing at The Lowry, Salford, tomorrow, Thursday 23rd March, in an unusual 3 language, 3x 1hour performances.
Quoting activists in Artists for Palestine (https://artistsforpalestine.org.uk/2017/03/18/fans-ask-eddie-izzard-dont-support-apartheid-israel/)…”Behind-the-scenes approaches failed to change his mind – hence the more direct, public approach.” So PSC will be having a protest at the The Lowry Theatre, Salford.
8.30-9.10pm to catch those fans going to the English language performance and those leaving the French gig. We will be distributing the attached leaflet but please bring your own placards and posters.
