Jello Biafra Speaks Out on Israel, Palestine, and a Cancelled Concert
November 17, 2011 in Social & Economic Justice
Earlier this year, Jello Biafra and the Guantanamo School Of Medicine had a scheduled concert in Tel Aviv, which led to pressure on him to cancel the concert to respect the Boycott movement against the Israeli State due to their Human Rights practices vis a vis Palestine.
It was an awkward situation, and Jello chose to cancel the concert, but he went to Israel anyway to see for himself what the conditions were on the ground. And then he wrote about it. Green Party Watch strongly recommends that you read Jello Biafra’s first hand account of his visit to Israel and Palestine. It includes video and pictures, and the length of the piece is a reflection of the depth that Jello Biafra put into this topic, this trip, and the controversy over the BDS (Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions) Movement.
