#BDS: Macy Gray is waiting to hear from you: Shall I perform in Israel?

Macy Gray left the following post on her official fan page on facebook:

I'm booked for 2 shows in TelAviv. I'm getting alot of letters from activists urging/begging me to boycott by NOT performing in protest of Apartheid against the Palestinians. What the Israeli government is doing to the Palestinians is disgusting, but I wana go. I gotta lotta fans there I dont want to cancel on and I dont know how my NOT going changes anything. What do you think? Stay or go?

The Israeli newspaper Haaretz has dedicated a whole article to urge Israelis and Zionists to tell Macy they're waiting for her in Israel, so let's unite our efforts and ask her to join the international BDS (boycott, divestment and sanctions) Movement!

Please like Macy Gray's pagehttp://www.facebook.com/pages/Macy-Gray-Official/176046896552 then leave her a comment asking her not to perform in Israel!

OR copy and paste the following:

Dear Macy,

Please support the Palestine call for BDS (boycott, divestment and sanctions) and boycott the occupying apartheid Zionist entity!

Say no to massacres, ethnic cleansing, tree uprooting, home demolition, war crimes, racism, religious supremacy, discrimination, collective punishment, official torture, disgrace unto the nation...

Join Vanessa Paradis and Johnny Depp who recently canceled their trip to Israel in support the boycott calls.


Remember GAZA:

More than 1,300 Palestinians in the Gaza Strip were killed during 22 days of Israeli shelling from sea, air and land. Palestinians in Gaza had nowhere to flee from Israel's onslaught as the border has been closed for two years, with disastrous consequences for the 1.5 million in habitants of Gaza -- the majority of them children and refugees.
