British comedian Eddie Izzard’s registration for #PalestineMarathon, to be held on this Friday, has been sent back to him by the organisers.
The Palestinian Campaign for the Cultural and Academic Boycott of Israel (PACBI), commented: “Eddie Izzard is not welcomed in the Palestine marathon after he has crossed our boycott picket line. Today, performing in Tel Aviv is equivalent to performing in Sun City during the time of apartheid, and there is no balancing act that can justify violating the Palestinian boycott call. We refuse to be used as a fig leaf to cover up Izzard’s whitewashing of Israel’s occupation and apartheid.”
