Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions (BDS) is a Palestinian-led movement for freedom, justice and equality. BDS upholds the simple principle that Palestinians are entitled to the same rights as the rest of humanity.
Holding a friendly match with Israel sends the message that ending the dreams of Palestinians footballers is not significant. Palestinians urge the Irish Football Association to take a stand for justice and cancel its friendly match with Israel.
In a stand for Palestinian rights, music legends, former Eurovision winner, commentator and presenters, performaning arts trade unions and well known LGBTQ+ and feminist campaigners and others endorse the call for Ireland to boycott Eurovision 2019.
