Have you heard? It’s all over the internet.
Ever since it was announced that the hugely popular Eurovision Song Contest was being held in Tel Aviv many have called for a boycott to support Palestinians and their cause. In fact, thousands of hard core fans boycotted the event and have actively raised funds for Palestine.
Although all the acts participating in the contest aren’t allowed use their platform on the stage as means of political protest, one band may have found a way around it.
Iceland, bondage punk band Hatari held up Palestinian flags and banners supporting Palestine as the camera pointed at them when the country’s official points were being announced by the hosts. You’ll see in the clip below that the camera moved away, as the crowd started to boo and the hosts looking obviously awkward as they continued on with the next country’s score.
This was all live by the way.
