Seattle, Come Out to Protest IDF Serenader & Supporter, Idan Raichel! Saturday at Meany Hall, UW, 7pm

            Protest Israeli musician on tour to whitewash Israel's War Crimes

Please join Voices for Palestine and Women in Black this Saturday Nov.15 at 7pm to protest an Israeli Government-funded concert at Meany Hall. 
Idan Raichel -- the musician on tour in the U.S. this month -- has strong links with the Israeli military and is a leading endorser of the right-wing US organization [Thank Israeli Soldiers]. "Our army is a basic ingredient of Israeliness," Raichel says, proudly.

Raichel performed for the army before, during, and after its August 2014 attack on Gaza, which killed over 2100 Palestinians, including 500 children.
According to Israel's Ministry of Foreign Affairs, sending Israeli artists and musicians abroad "show[s]  Israel's prettier face, so we are not thought of purely in the context of war." This intentionally misleading use of art and music serves to obscure Israel's military occupation of the West Bank and Gaza Strip, as well as Israel's overall history of grave human rights abuses. 

What:     Protest Israeli musician on tour to whitewash Israel's War Crimes
Where:  Meany Hall-UW Campus
*we will be standing at the entrance of the underground parking garage on 41st & 15th Ave NE and also inside the garage near the elevators.
When:   Saturday Nov. 15th, 7-8pm 

Thanks for all your support!
