Contact the ‘Australia Decides’ SBS Eurovision artists: Don’t celebrate Israeli Apartheid
SBS Australia and Blink TV have now announced the 10 contestants for the Eurovision – ‘Australia Decides’ – Gold Coast 2019 event happening on February 8 and 9.
We have written to each contestant (see our letter below to Kate Miller-Heidke), but we really need your help to let these musicians know that Palestinians are calling on them to #BoycottEurovision2019 in Israel.
All the artists are on Facebook, 9 have Instagram, and most use Twitter.
Contact details for all of the performers are below. Here’s how to do it best:
1/. If you’re a fan, let them know you love what they do
2/. Be super polite: we want to inform and convince them. Remember, they may not really understand the situation for Palestinians or how they can help, so again, be super polite!
3/. Use your own words, but there are many places to get information, including many links on this page
4/. Tell them about the role international artists played in piling on the pressure with boycotts to end apartheid in South Africa – some of them may not know anything about this
5/. Remind them that Eurovision will happen again in 2020, so sitting out this year for Palestinians’ human rights is not so hard
6/. Ask for a reply
7/. Share what you’re doing on social media so others will also contact them
8/. Use the hashtags #Eurovision2019 #BoycottEurovision2019 #FreePalestine #BoycottIsrael
