    Why on earth would the Black Eye’d Peas want to sing in Saudia Arabia, I’m sure they don’t need the money and it’s hard to believe they don’t know what’s going on with the murder of the Washington Post journalist and the killing in Yemen. the cholera epidemic and the thousands of starving children, and the Saudi blockade supported by the U.S.

    The Black Eyed Peas are admired worldwide for championing justice and human rights. To perform in Saudi Arabia, a country responsible for the starvation deaths of 85,000 children in Yemen, the bombings of school buses and hospitals, and now the blatant murder of a journalist, would make a mockery of their values. I echo the suggestion to hold a benefit concert for the people of Yemen instead.

    Sincerely,

    Lesley Williams

    How about another George Harrison or Live Aid like concert for Yemen put together by The Black Eyed Peas w the help of Stevie Wonder John Legend Roger Waters Rhianna Sting Peter Gabriel et al. You could pull this off. A KSA concert could only be done if it followed the course of what Roger Waters did for Palestine.

    Dear people at Codepink, I tried to send a message but the only countries available to chose from are Canada, Australia and USA.
    Is it possible to include european countries as well? I am from Portugal.
    Thank you.

    Here’s a thought: Go to Yemen instead and perform a benefit concert for people who desperately need a voice singing for them. Stream your performance live and get donations pouring in to help the Yemeni people, maybe even stop some innocent children from starving to death. Your call.

    It’s time (past time, really) to severe ties with Saudi Arabia. And this means not just political and military ties, which are bad enough (immoral and obscene, really) but artists, like Black eyed Peas, apparently, who think it’s OK support this corrupt, vicious regime culturally by performing there! —unless, of course, they use their art to protest SA’s vile practices.

    Your performing in Saudi Arabia is a wink and a nod to this fascist regime. Please don’t doit.

    If the lyrics to your songs mean anything, don’t do this concert. Let the Saudi despots know you are paying attention!

    Artists are powerful voices for justice. Please walk your talk and cancel the concert in Saudi Arabia.

    A lot of criticism needs to be said about the Saudi Arabian regime. They are destroying Yemen with the help from the USA government.

    I really do wonder what sort of a bubble some artists live in where they cannot see the hypocrisy of their positions. They apparently dissed trump for his views but feel perfectly fine performing in Saudia Arabia. where the government murdered a journalist who spoke up against the government. If the Saudis felt it was okay to murder a journalist they would have been equally comfortable murdering a singer or rapper who criticised them.

    According to Black Eyed Peas, freedom to criticise is okay for Amercans, but not for Saudis,. Hypocritcal and a double standard at best.
