“American rapper Talib Kweli has refused to cave in to demands from a German festival that he denounce the BDS – boycott, divestment and sanctions – movement for Palestinian rights.
As a result, he was disinvited from the July festival’s lineup.
Kweli is saying that he refuses to “censor myself and lie about BDS for a check.”
Germany’s lower house of parliament, the Bundestag, recently passed a resolution equating BDS with anti-Semitism.
The smear against a nonviolent movement that rejects all forms of racism prompted protests by Palestinians in the occupied West Bank and the Gaza Strip and denunciation from across Palestinian society.” – <https://electronicintifada.net/blogs/tamara-nassar/rapper-talib-kweli-rejects-german-demand-denounce-israel-boycott>
