UK: 700 artists announce 'cultural boycott' of Israel

Via the Independent:
Seven hundred artists say they are boycotting Israel from today until the country’s “colonial oppression of Palestinians” ends.

Writing a letter in the Guardian, the group - which includes the likes of Brian Eno, Alexei Sayle, Richard Ashcroft, Riz Ahmed, Miriam Margolyes and Ken Loach - explained that they will not continue a “business-as-usual” relationship with the country.

This will include not accepting “professional invitations to Israel, nor funding, from any institutions linked to its government”.
