Cancel your concerts in Israel

That nutty bunch of artists/activists in Toronto have released another political musical parody about Palestine/Israel, this time targeting big name singers who have concerts planned in Israel this summer and drawing attention to the upcoming flotilla. From the video’s Vimeo page:

The Freedom Flotilla 2, with 12+ boats carrying humanitarian aid and 1000+ peace activists, is sailing to Gaza in late June. Alice Walker, who’s sailing with us, calls this the Freedom Ride of our generation. We want to help open this Palestinian port and end the illegal Israeli blockade, which has caused so much suffering. Meanwhile, the global BDS (Boycott Divestment Sanctions) movement is calling on Bob Dylan, Paul Simon, Laurie Anderson and Kiri Te Kanawa to cancel their 2011 Israel concerts and get on the boat!
