The Pixies have a concert booked in Tel-Aviv, Palestine-Israel. The concert announcements makes no mention Apartheid Israel”s ongoing colonial dispossession and discrimination against the Palestinian people, and as such would break the Cultural Boycott of Israel. Israeli activists from the group Boycott! from Within (BFW) initiated a campaign requesting that the Boston band honor the cultural boycott, and cancel their show.
On Land Day, March 30th 2010, activists around the world have followed the BFW call, and initiated a Social Media Offfensive, to raise awareness among Pixies fans that their rocking darlings are helping to whitewash apartheid in Palestine-Israel. Through Twitter, Facebook, blogs, message boards, comment sites, concerned citizens around the world can join the front by clicking here: http://www.endtheoccupation.org/article.php?id=2595
