[Boycott - Cultural]
Alert: Sun 26th Jan 2014 - Picket Cirque du Soleil - Say No To Apartheid!
23 January 2014
Cirque du Soleil is a contemporary circus based in Montreal, Quebec with an estimated annual revenue of US $810 million. In 2012 they breached the Palestinian call for a cultural boycott of Israel and performed in Israel. In 2014 they are once again booked for 10 performances at Tel Aviv's Nokia Arena with its 'Quidam' show.
We are asking Cirque du Soleil to this time not turn their backs on the oppressed, but to face up to the ugly reality of apartheid, and to respect the Palestinian call to boycott apartheid Israel by cancelling their performances in Tev Aviv.
We will be picketing their performance in London at the Royal Albert Hall on Sunday 26th January 2014, and speaking to their fans whom we are sure will want Circque du Soleil to stand on the side of justice and against apartheid. This follows the successful picket we held on their opening night in London on 4th January.
Please join us on

[On Muslim prisoners post-911] "Its important for us not just to be able to fight the case legally but also for somebody like him to get them moral support. One should not look at the fact whether or not somebody is convicted.. one should be looking at the fact there is an individual here who is suffering mentally, physically and needs support - just letters and cards to say to him 'Are you okay? Please do not give up hope' - support of that nature is important for individuals like Isa and others like him.. remember this much - he converted to Islam, he doesn't have a Muslim family - where as others may have a Muslim family, extended members who may write to them and support them. Give moral support, it really does help a prisoner when he is sitting in his cell locked up 23 hours of the day.."
