Update: Activists threaten Israel Philharmonic in Milan tonightmain
The pro-Pal coalition in Italy is threatening to repeat last week’s disruptions at the BBC Proms when the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra plays in Milan tonight and Turin tomorrow. Specifically, they intend ‘to challenge the Israeli presence and condemn the moral insensitivity of cultural institutions in Milan and Turin, as happened in London during the concert at the Royal Albert Hall on September 1.’
This could mean that they have infiltrated dusrupters into the concert halls.
The plan, according to their agit-prop website, which shows an armed Israeli soldier apparently threatening a small child, is ‘to make a garrison’ at the concerts. Those who believe that musicians should be allowed to perform free of political distraction may wish to support the concert as best they can.
