Palestinian women urge Alicia Keys not to perform in Israel
Alicia Keys is scheduled to perform in Israel next month in July. Some political activists are asking Alicia Keys to cancel the show. Several high profile figures such as Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Alice Walker and Roger Waters have reportedly expressed support for the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement which aims at pressuring Israel to abide by “international law”. Protesters claim that the state of Israel is responsible for human rights violations.
There are a few articles online that compare the Israeli Government’s treatment of Palestinians to that of the treatment of blacks in South Africa during Apartheid or the U.S. government’s treatment of black people during segregation.
The film below is aimed at getting Alicia to cancel her show in Tel Aviv. The video features Palestinian women who resist the occupation of their Palestine.
