Alert: Pet Shop Boys Don't Play Apartheid Israel - Picket London event 19th June 2013
The Pet Shop Boys - Neil Tennant and Chris Lowe, recognised as the most successful duo in UK music history, are scheduled to perform in apartheid Israel to a segregated audience in Tel Avivís Nokia Arena on 23rd June, 2013. We are asking them to open their eyes to the ugly reality of apartheid Israel, to cancel their concert and stand with the oppressed Palestinians. Join the multitude of artists who are respecting the Palestinian call to boycott Israel.
We will be picketing their appearance at the screening of Battleship Potemkin at the British Film Institute (BFI) on the Southbank in London on 19th June. (They will be introducing the classic film for which they have recorded a new musical score.)
Please join us on
Wed 19th June
(train/tube: Waterloo - South Bank exit)
Its imperative that we are there by 6:00pm so we can welcome them as they come to introduce the movie which starts at 6:30pm.
