“Irish Artists’ Pledge to Boycott Israel” reaches 200 signatures


The singer-songwriter Dylan Walshe became the 200th signatory of the “Irish Artists’ Pledge to Boycott Israel,” which commits the signatories not to “avail of any invitation to perform or exhibit in Israel, nor to accept any funding from any institution linked to the government of Israel, until such time as Israel complies with international law and universal principles of human rights.”
     The pledge—an initiative of the Ireland-Palestine Solidarity Campaign—was launched last August and since then has garnered the support of many creative and performing artists, including Stephen Rea, Sinéad Cusack, Christy Moore, Dónal Lunny, Andy Irvine, Damien Dempsey, Neilí Conroy, Conor Kostick, Liam Ó Maonlaí, Sharon Shannon, Robert Ballagh, and Nuala Ní Dhomhnaill. (The full list of signatories can be viewed on line at www.ipsc.ie/pledge.)
