Please tell Céline Dion: DON'T PERFORM IN ISRAEL!

Quebec pop star Céline Dion recently announced that she would perform two concerts in Tel Aviv, Israel in August as part of her “Courage” world tour.  Since 2005, Palestinian civil society has asked for the world to boycott Israel until it respects the human rights of Palestinians.  This movement is called BDS – Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions – and dozens of famous performers have already refused to perform in Israel, including Roger Waters, Lorde, Elvis Costello, Lauryn Hill, Peter Gabriel and others. 

Please complete the fields below to send an email to Dion's management, and to add your name to the petition!

    Mme Dion, svp, renoncez à vos projets en Israël. Je ne doute pas de votre bonne volonté, mais les enjeux sont si grands.

    Celine
    We all love you & love your songs.
    If you go to Israel & sing there, it’s Disrespect for millions who are Palestinian.

    Please Celine, you have compassion, it comes through when you sing ! The Palestinian people suffer the worst treatment, they are terrorized and oppressed, ethnically-cleansed, exiled or living under a brutal Militarized occupation. The children suffer from trauma , the water in Gaza is unfsafe for drinking and medicine is not allowed in . In 2005 they asked for nonviolent help through Boycotts, based on the models that ended South Africa’s Apartheid in the late 1990s. Your fellow artists Lorde and Lauryn Hill have both joined the cultural boycott by deciding not to play in Israel. Palestinians can’t go to your performances. Please wait to sing there until the Palestinians have their human rights to enjoy your voice! You would sound extra-heavenly if you don’t play in Israel , and would be admired for your courage, ethical decision, and your compassion for the oppressed. Thank you, Signed, a fan in the USA

    In the 50 plus years of Israeli Occupation of East Jerusalem and the West Bank, thousands upon thousands of children have been born under occupation, and without civil rights. Born into a life without freedom of movement, and where separation walls, settler only roads and military checkpoints are the sad norm for rhem. No person of conscience would perform for Israel in knowlege of all that..

    Please take in account Israel has been on another killing streak in the last days using the heaviest bombs a plane can drop, and not for the first time this year. Israeli snipers have been killing unarmed Palestinians near the border for the last 1,5 year..over 25.000 people have been shot resulting many times in amputations..in an area that is completely controlled by Israel. 97% of the water is undrinkable according to the United Nations..that is to name just a thing…

    Celine, think again before you allow your name to be used as if Israel is a democratic country that upholds humanitarian values and law according to International standards..because it simply is not.

    Check any UN report concerning Israel.

    Give peace a chance! Singing in iIsrael will only give children killers legitimacy . See the pictures, search how separation walls, home demolitions and unwarranted arrests of 4 year olds before you endorse apartheid.

    Although the government of Canada supports the apartheid State of Israel, most concerned citizens of Canada want to Boycott Israel until all aboriginal Palestinians are recognized with equal human rights.
    This 70-year-old violation of human rights must be supported by all nations by boycotting Israel, as the international community did to end apartheid in South Africa during the early 1990s.
