Join StandWithUs and Ireland Israel Alliance in thanking Irish broadcaster RTÉ in supporting Eurovision in Israel.
As you all know, since Israel won the 2018 Eurovision with Netta Barzilai’s “Toy”, there has been pressure on Eurovision organisers to withdraw hosting rights from Israel for the 2019 Eurovision. When that failed, boycotters targeted national broadcasters, attempting to convince them not to participate in the 2019 event.
At the time of writing, an Ireland Palestine Solidarity Campaign petition to RTÉ for a boycott of Eurovision 2019 has gathered some 10,700 signatures. The IPSC continues to solicit its members to write to RTÉ calling for a boycott.
Together we can fight back against hate, and unite for music!
