Joy Harjo: Cancel your show, don't perform for Israeli Apartheid!

    1. Petition by

      USACBI

Native American poet and musician Joy Harjo is scheduled to perform at Tel Aviv University on Monday, December 10. SIGN HERE TO ASK THAT SHE HONOR THE INTERNATIONAL ACADEMIC AND CULTURAL BOYCOTT OF ISRAEL.

It's time to take a principled stance in support of Palestinian human rights being violated by the Israeli state's colonial occupation and apartheid regime. Palestinian civil society has called for the international academic and cultural boycott of Israel. This is an institutional boycott responding to the call to join the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) movement.

      Dear Joy, I believe we radicals should collectively observe a srocial, cultural, economic and political boycott of Israel much like the int'nl community pressured S. Africa. The Palestinians essentially live on reservations/r being pushed to the sea.

      Yr music and poetry has met so much to me/please reconsider.

      Dear Joy Harjo,

      I don't know whether or not you'll ever actually see this but yeah, it's worth a try. Did you know that your performing for the people that detain thousands of innocent Palestinians everyday many of which are children. Did you know that your performing for the same people that took the lives of millions of Palestinians, torn families apart and robbed children of their childhood. We may dream of becoming rich and famous one day but the Palestinians only dream of returning to their land and living in peace, sleeping every night without the fear of being bombed, walking in the streets without being shot. Did you know that the same people your performing for are destroying that dream for them. Reconsider you performance for the the 'Israeli' Apartheid,

      Your sincerly,

      A teenager girl who one day hope to live to see a Free Palestine

      I have loved Joy Harjo for a very long time....and I am shocked at her performance in Israel at this terrible time.
