Off-Off-Broadway BDS Musical Tour!

Press Release

For Immediate Release

New York, NY – In a joyful celebration of the Palestinian peaceful and creative grassroots resistance, 40 New York human rights activists conducted a musical walking tour of businesses complicit in Israeli Apartheid in the Lower East Side of Manhattan. The “Off-Off-Broadway BDS Tour” was part of the international commemoration of the fifth anniversary of the Palestinian United Call for Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) against Israel.

“This year we mark five years of hard and fruitful work to achieve peace and equality for all in Palestine-Israel. We are inspired by the growing global boycott movement and with the recent campaigns that range from dockworkers in San Francisco, campaigns in Norway, Sweden, Turkey and India refusing to unload ships to cultural figures like Elvis Costello refusing to perform in Israel,” said Ryvka Zohar of Adalah-NY.
