Tell Lauryn Hill to Cancel Performance in Israel

Ready or Not, Palestinians Called for Boycott. Don't Play Israel's Sun City Ms. Lauryn Hill!

On May 7, Lauryn Hill, an American singer–songwriter and rapper best known for being a member of the Fugees, is set to perform in Israel.

Sign the petition to call on her to respect the Palestinian call to boycott Israel and cancel her performance!

The presence of artists is routinely used by Israel to legitimize its policies and maintain its reputation as a normal member of the international community. Just as during the struggle against South African apartheid artists were expected not to cross the picket line and perform in Sun City, artists today are asked to heed the Palestinian call and refuse to help Israel whitewash its denial of Palestinian rights.

Call on Lauryn Hill to join performers such as Bono, Snoop Dogg, Elvis Costello, Carlos Santana, Pink Floyd’s Roger Waters, and Stevie Wonder who have already refused to entertain Israeli occupation, apartheid, and ethnic cleansing.

Once you sign the petition, please take action on Twitter to amplify our call. You can find sample tweets from member group the US Campaign for the Academic and Cultural Boycott of Israel here
