One thought on “No to Eurovision 2019 in Israel

  1. “After careful consideration by 4ZZZ station management, the Board of Directors of Creative Broadcasters Ltd and 4ZZZ/Queer Radio Brisbane Eurovision Song Contest (ESC) correspondent Blair Martin, 4ZZZ has made the decision not to cover Eurovision 2019.

    4ZZZ has highlighted Palestinian issues since commencing broadcasting in 1975, and we have decided that covering the Contest as had been done in recent years would be inconsistent with our relationship with Palestinian Australians and others who support the #BDS (Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions) movement and its goals of freedom and equality for all Palestine people in the Occupied Territories.

    For this reason there will be no 4ZZZ Eurovision Song Contest (ESC) correspondent travelling to Israel nor any coverage of ESC this year on Queer Radio or any specific programs relating to the Contest on Zed Digital.” Free Palestine!
