the Letter, which is published in The Guardian signed by a number of prominent culture producers in the Uk, among others, Peter Gabriel, Vivienne Westwood and Wolf Alice. Musicians, writers, and directors criticize Israel for its occupation of palestinian land.
”the Eurovision may be light entertainment, but it is not exempted from respecting human rights - and we can't ignore Israel's systematic violations of palestinian human rights,” they write in the letter and continues:
”the BBC is bound by its agreement to ”promote freedom of expression”. It should act on the basis of their principles and push the Eurovision relocate to a country where violations of this freedom are not committed”.
