Israelis respond to Nick Cave’s proclamation of love by Boycott! Supporting the Palestinian BDS Call from Within

Please TAKE ACTION RIGHT NOW and send your letter to the UN Office of the Special Adviser on the Prevention of Genocide and the International Criminal Court Prosecutor.

It is for this decades-long, intricate system of oppression against a disembodied indigenous population, including seven million refugees prohibited from return, that peaks in genocidal episodes of extermination in the Gaza strip, that we are dumbfounded by your apathy and callus comments.

You can count on our continued support as you advance them. We would be proud to count ourselves among M4BL’s allies – on the side which opposes racism and oppression.
