Ziggy Marley, help end the war on Palestinians

More and more artists are standing up for Palestinian rights by refusing to perform in apartheid Israel. Ziggy Marley sings about peace and justice. But if he goes forward with his July and August concert dates in Israel, he will be using his name and talents to whitewash Israel’s crimes against the Palestinian people, including ongoing massacres taking place right now in Gaza. Tell Ziggy to act on the principles he sings about and cancel his JulyAugust concerts in Israel.


Cancel your concerts in Israel!

Dear Ziggy,

Your music speaks to your commitment to build a better world. So, we ask you to respond to the Palestinian call for human rights, dignity and freedom by canceling your July 31 and August 1 shows in Israel.

Palestinians living under Israel’s system of occupation face a nightmare of daily humiliations, roads divided between Jews and Palestinians, a military court system where children are taken from their homes in the middle of the night and abused, and massacres of unarmed protesters. Israel openly institutes two sets of laws for two groups of people -- the definition of apartheid -- and is the only country in the world with a juvenile military court system.

Palestinians are calling on the international community to support their struggle for freedom and equality in the same way that was effective in ending South African apartheid. In accordance with your lyrics: “people for peace more than people for war, and people for justice it’s never too far,” we ask you to cancel your July 31 and August 1, 2018 concerts in Israel. Just as artists’ refusal to play Sun City helped end South African apartheid, you canceling your shows in Israel can make a significant impact towards ending Israeli oppression and violence.

Please join the artistic boycott of Israel by canceling your Israeli concerts.

Sincerely,

Who's signing

    Palestininans are being erased, slowly and violently. Please help bring a peaceful solution through BDS and help stop the violence.
