Hundreds of British artists announce cultural boycott of Israel

Some 700 British artists pledged to boycott Israel on Saturday in reaction to what they termed “the Palestinian catastrophe,” the British newspaper Guardian reported on Saturday.

The artists, who include Roger Waters, Brian Eno, Mike Leigh, Ken Loach, Richard Ashcroft, and others, pledged that they “will not engage in business-as-usual cultural relations with Israel.”

“We will accept neither professional invitations to Israel, nor funding, from any institutions linked to its government,” the letter read.
