Israel, welcome back when Palestine is free!

Malmö, 2013-05-13

The Eurovision Song Contest (ESC) is an opportunity for people of different countries and cultures to come together. But it is not right to sing along with an apartheid state! Letting an occupying power participate in the ESC is a way of normalizing relations with that country. Therefore we say no to Israel´s participation.

Israel will not be welcome to Malmö until its government:

  • Lifts the occupation and tears down the apartheid wall.
  • Grants Palestinian Israelis’ complete and equal civic rights
  • Respects and implements the displaced Palestinians’ right to return

It is time to show Israel that their actions are unacceptable and will have consequences. After decades of fruitless attempts to force Israel to comply with UN resolutions and international law we need to up the ante and get creative!

Our method today is to sing. We have written new lyrics to all the Swedish winning songs and Sweden´s contribution this year. Sing along for a free Palestine! Sing along and be inspired to join the movement for boycott, divestment and sanctions to create a just future for both Israelis and Palestinians!

”CAPTURED IN APARTHEID”

We have never stopped believ-ing
in the right of return for the refugees

That’s why we can´t understaa-aand
Pale-sti-ni-ans keep on living in the camps

Checkpoints, walls and all imprisoned people too
Israel, we´re here to blame it all on you.

Captured in apartheid
Night and day
Palestine is kept this way
Far from justice and their freedom

Captured in apartheid
Night and day
Palestine will change this way
we support them here toda-aaaay
