France: Pro-Palestinan protesters accuse Paris Opera of "complicity with the Zionist colonizers"

"We don't dance with apartheid"

Via i24News (h/t Daphne Anson):
A few dozen pro-Palestinian activists tried to disrupt a performance by the Batsheva Israeli dance company in Paris on Tuesday night.

Several dozen protesters held a demonstration outside the Opéra de Paris, but a number of pro-Palestinian activists managed to get inside where they draped Palestinian flags and shouted anti-Israel slogans.


Despite security checks, several protesters wearing keffiyehs (an Arabic headdress) and waving Palestinian flags called for a boycott of Israel, shouting "a racist gang in the Opéra Garnier", "We do not dance with apartheid" and "murderer Israel, Palestine will conquer."

The demonstrators also accused the Paris Opera of "complicity with the Zionist colonizers."
