Don’t Artwash Saudi Crimes!

Saudi Arabia’s Winter at Tantora Festival is an eight-week long event held in the historic northwestern Saudi town of Al-Ula that serves to distract from Saudi’s war crimes and human rights abuses. The 2019-2020 season — December 20 through February 9 — has booked Enrique Iglesias, Lionel Richie, and Rod Stewart. In addition to musical performances, the festival will include horse racing, hot-air ballooning, and other artwashing events.

    Shameful if you participate and support this murderous regime. Remember Kashogi – no one is immune if they challenge the regime.

    Please continue with your good causes. And do not perform in Saudi Arabia, whose crimes against humanity are supported by the United States government.

    I don’t believe you created music to support repressive and murderous regimes. Please cancel your performance in Saudi Arabia.

    Music is a uniting force. Please don’t use that energy to legitimize the murderous Saudi regime.

    Please don’t provide a happy soundtrack for Saudi abuses. Stand with the people of Yemen. Stand with political prisoners and brave journalists. Stand for Jamal Khashoggi. STAND!

    Saudi Arabia must be held responsible for all its crimes, to women of that country, for Jamal Khashoghgi savage murder, for 9/11, for starvation of the Yemeni People, for all its aids to terrorist groups around the World.

    It’s galling that we constantly need to “beg” these ostensibly humane entertainers to cancel appearances in countries, which so obviously trample on the rights and threaten the very lives of children and minorities.

    All I can say about them is that they HAVE NO RESPECT FOR LIVES … because they are not ignorant of the human rights abuses and war crimes committed by the Saudi regime and have chosen money over and above their moral sensibilities.

    We implore you three very talented artists to use your influence to make a statement by refusing the concert invitation from Saudi Arabia because of the pain, suffering, and deaths they are causing in Yemen. Thousands of men, women, and children are dead or dying.
