@PhilOrch, Don't Orchestrate Aparteid
Despite the massive outcry from communities in Philadelphia and around the world, the Philadelphia Orchestra is doubling down on their decision to visit Israel this summer to help provide political and diplomatic cover for the Israeli occupation of Palestine. The Orchestra actually intends to visit a military base while on tour, to meet with the Israeli forces that just murdered 20 unarmed Palestinian demonstrators on March 30th. Military snipers killed dozens and shot hundreds more.
Our demands are simple: Philly, Don't Orchestrate Apartheid! Cancel the Apartheid Tour to Israel!
A diverse crowd turned out Thursday, April 12 to peacefully make their demands heard, just like our brothers and sisters did in Gaza two weeks ago, and they honored those martyrs who laid down their lives for the freedom and self-determination of all Palestinians.
