#BDS Action Alert: Sign the Petition: Cirque Du Soleil: Do not shine on Apartheid! #CdSCancelIsrael

"“Morality, like art, means drawing a line someplace” 
~ Oscar Wilde
Irish Dramatist, Novelist, & Poet (1854 – 1900)
We, citizens and residents of Qatar, came to know that Cirque du Soleil is scheduled to perform in Tel Aviv this August, after first performing in Doha in July. Many of us have always admired CdS and enjoyed their magnificent performances, however we cannot in good conscience attend their performance while Palestinians continue to face injustice and apartheid. We urge CdS to cancel their performance in Tel Aviv and demonstrate that the people of Palestine are not an exception when it comes to freedom, dignity and justice.
We, therefore, join this call and support the letter addressed from Qatar Youth Opposed to Normalization (QAYON) to Renée-Claude Ménard, the Director of Cirque du Soleil.
