BDS activists have called on Madonna to cancel her appearance at the Eurovision Song Contest. In recent months there has been contact between the production of the European Song Contest and the Queen of Pop, with anticipation that the singer will perform at the coveted event.

Last night it was finally confirmed that the successful singer will appear in the artistic part of the final night of the competition on May 18. However, those against Israel they called Madonna to cancel her arrival.

Activists of boycott organizations against Israel published various posts calling on the Madonna to cancel her appearance at the event under the hashtag of #Boycotteurovision2019. 


"Madonna, open your heart to the people of Gaza," wrote one of the activists, chattering to Madonna's song "Open you heart" and added, "Palestinians are being slaughtered by Israel for demanding the basic human rights of freedom and life.


The caption added a caricature of Madonna with leather boots and a mesh netting as she stood next to a smiling Israeli soldier who was treading a Palestinian boy on a brown tear. 



"Madonna, artists and countries participating in the Eurovision Song Contest are taking part in the normalization of the murder of Palestinians and the Zionist occupation," read another page of BDS activists. "Serious efforts are needed to emphasize Israel's crimes."
