Thank You Carlos Santana

Thank You Carlos Santana

Carlos Santana Artists Against Apartheid  and the US Campaign for the Academic and Cultural Boycott of Israel would like to extend our thanks to Carlos Santana for honoring the call for the Cultural Boycott of Israel, by electing not to perform in the apartheid state.  The call for cultural boycott was successful in creating international accountability for human rights violations in apartheid South Africa, and is now being applied in the case of Israel.

The Israeli state has repeatedly evidenced that it relies on artistic propaganda to improve its “international brand” as a pluralistic democracy, all the while continuing state sponsored ethnic cleansing.  Performing in Israel, as if it were just another stop on the tour, normalizes the apartheid practiced by the Israeli government, and disregards Palestinian led campaigns to organize international solidarity against it (www.bdsmovement.net).

All artists are requested to boycott Israel as a tour destination, except when performing in solidarity with the popular struggle against occupation, dispossession and apartheid.

Cultural figures like Roger Waters, Arundhati Roy, Brian Eno, John Berger, and Ken Loach have expanded their advocacy to publicly hold Israel accountable for its human rights violations and war crimes.   We hope that Santana, as an advocate of human rights, will join Archbishop Desmond Tutu and others engaged in the nonviolent struggle for equal rights and justice for the Palestinian people  in endorsing the cultural boycott of Israel.

    Santana and Elvis C. are imbeciles. Islam is garbage. Israel is the greatest country on Earth. MOhammed is the pus that comes out of a rat’s anus. Take your head out of your ass, Carlos.

    I’m sure glad I live in Santa Barbara and away from all the sand monkey muzzies, and far from Santana and Elvis C.

    If you happen to be applying for a part either straight in the NHS or in an organisation that supplies NHS services,
    you will be asked to show how you think the NHS values apply in your everyday work.
    The identical will be correct if you are applying for a university
    course funded by the NHS.
