We Are One Film Fesitval – BDS (Image: PACBI)

Palestinian rights organizations, filmmakers, other artists and cultural organizations call on Tribeca Enterprises to exclude the Jerusalem Film Festival from the We Are One film festival, and we urge conscientious filmmakers to withdraw if it does not, due to the the festival’s blatant complicity in lsrael’s human rights violations.

Four more filmmakers have joined a growing number of artists boycotting the Tel Aviv LGBT International Film Festival in response to a Palestinian call. French director Océane Michel explained on Facebook: “I stand in solidarity with the Palestinian people and express my total disagreement with Israel’s policy towards Palestine. For this reason, I refuse to take part in the pinkwashing strategy of the Israeli government. I want my movie withdrawn from the festival.”

Cyclists and supporters of Palestinian human rights took to the streets in 20 cities across the world on Saturday, March 10, 2018 for the #RelocateTheRace International Day of Action. Bike rallies and actions called on Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI), the governing body of cycling to relocate the start of the famed Giro d’Italia cycling event, set for May 4 in Jerusalem.
