Campaign to Boycott the Red Sea Jazz Festival Comes to an End... For Now!
We'd like to thank everyone for participating in the campaign to boycott the Red Sea Jazz Festival in apartheid Israel!
It was only 2 weeks, but what a ride! Signatures are still flowing. Many of you had a lot of dramatic interactions with the musicians on the social networks. And we all shared in the happiness of cancelations from Chris "Daddy" Dave and the Drumhedz (Pino Palladino, Kebbi Williams and Isaiah Sharkey) and Matt Schofield and his players, Jonny Henderson and Kevin Hayes.
This is a thank you, but not a goodbye. The Red Sea Jazz Festival has recently become a bi-annual event. So stay tuned for a few tweaks, to make this an ongoing campaign, until the Red Sea Jazz Festival is known to all Jazz musicians around the world as what it is: A government sponsored and organized mechanism of whitewashing Israel's apartheid.
Updates will be sent soon.
Thanks everyone for making it as big as it is. You are the campaign!
