DON’T DANCE WITH ISRAEL APARTHEID – Edinburgh – 30 Aug to 1 Sep
Protest Brand Israel’s Batsheva in Edinburgh and across the UK
Scottish Friends of Palestine is a member of Don’t Dance with Israeli Apartheid campaign, which is organising demonstrations against Israeli State-funded Batsheva at the Edinburgh International Festival and across the UK in November. Batsheva is part of the Brand Israel effort to shift attention away from Israel’s crimes: ethnic cleansing and mass violence against the Palestinian people.
What you can do:
- Wherever you are, please send off the letter supporting the call from Don’t Dance with Israeli Apartheid to cancel the invitation to Batsheva. It only takes a few seconds.
- Join the protests at the Playhouse Theatre, Leith Walk, Edinburgh on Thursday 30th August from 6.00pm and two following nights.
- Support the daily activity during the Edinburgh Festival in support of Palestinian freedom. If you or your friends are visiting Edinburgh in August get in touch firstname.lastname@example.org or volunteer.
- Link up now with protest organisers across the UK to plan demonstrations at every Batsheva performance during their 8-city UK tour in ‘November’, including the two opening slots in Edinburgh’s Festival Theatre (Oct 30 & 31), email email@example.com.
Batsheva met with protests at many US events earlier this year. Another Brand Israel component, Habima Theatre Company, met with vigorous protests during their two nights at the Globe Theatre in London. During the world’s largest arts festival, a sustained campaign and a large and vigorous protest over three nights at the Edinburgh Playhouse performances can send a strong message around the world against Israeli crimes.
