We present a full evening of entertainment from prominent artists and performers, who will raise the roof for Palestine in protest of Eurovision taking place in Tel Aviv, Israel!
Israel cannot hide military occupation and apartheid behind the glitz and glamour of Eurovision. Tens of thousands across the world have joined the Boycott Eurovision 2019 campaign; to highlight Israel’s abuse of Palestinian human rights and pinkwashing tactics used to try and mask its crimes.
Join us in supporting the call from the Palestinian people to Boycott, Divest and Sanction (BDS) Israel until Palestinians enjoy the same rights and freedoms that belong to all of us!
Join the Party for Palestine and protest Eurovision taking place in Israel!
