German festival is hit by BDS pulloutmain
The Ruhrtriennale, which last week cancelled a Young Father’s concert over the group’s support for an Israel boycott, has been notified by five other artists that they are pulling out in solidarity.
The five are Sharif Sehnaoui, Tony Elieh, Mazen Kerbaj, Hassan Khan and Raed Yassin.
The festival is designed to regenerate a region in industrial decline. Boycotts of any kind are the last thing it needs.
