TELL THE ISRAEL PHILHARMONIC: APARTHEID IS OUT OF TUNE

Join Adalah-NY and other groups to protest the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra’s performance at Carnegie Hall on Tuesday Feb 22 at 6:30 pm.

The orchestra’s performance is part of its annual national tour, which will be protested in other cities as well. The protests respond to the call from Palestinian civil society to boycott institutions that work to normalize the occupation of Palestinian territories and the oppression of Palestinians in Israel, the territories, and in exile.

The orchestra actively participates in whitewashing Israel's apartheid policies. By serving as cultural ambassadors for Israel, the Israel Philharmonic is supporting the Israeli government's “Brand Israel” initiative, an effort to divert public attention from Israel's oppression of the Palestinian people. The orchestra refrains from criticism of Israel's policies, and is described by the American Friends of the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra as  "Israel’s finest cultural emissary,” which “travels throughout the world…The goodwill created by these tours...is of enormous value to the State of Israel. As a result, the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra maintains its position at the forefront of cultural diplomacy and the international music scene."
 
People throughout the Middle East are mobilizing to challenge repressive governments; the people will not tolerate dictatorships or occupations. Join them and join us in the street for a peaceful, meaningful, timely protest against the art-washing of apartheid.
