We are 48 hours away from the Oscars ceremony, a golden opportunity to make our voices heard as we urge the nominees to reject the propaganda trip to Israel that the Israeli government is inviting all Oscar nominees on.

This week we saw how American corporate media has a long way to go in representing us fairly as Variety magazine censored an ad calling on Oscar nominees to reject Israeli apartheid.

In the end the ad was placed in the LA Times and the controversy amplified our message even more.

Let’s take to social media this weekend as the media’s attention turns to the Oscars ceremony. Celebrities are not easy to reach and social media can help get the message directly to them.

Here’s how you can help:

  1. Join our Thunderclap by Feb 28

  2. Use these sample tweets and handles provided to reach the nominees directly

  3. Share our creative memes on your Facebook and Twitter

  4. Watch and share these videos by Apartheid Adventures and AJ+

The Oscars red carpet event starts at 7pm Eastern Time on Sunday February 28th. Join us for a twitter storm during the event using the hashtags #SkipTheTrip and #Oscars

Thank you to those who signed our petition to nominees. Thousands have already signed, and if you haven’t yet please clickhere to add your name.

Yours,
Palestinian BDS National Committee (BNC)

ps: follow us on twitter and facebook - we will be taking part in the action this weekend too!
