Following Israel’s massacre in Gaza in which snipers targeted thousands of unarmed Palestinian protestors, also attacking medics, journalists, photographers and children – a coordinated wave of bands have publicly endorsed the cultural boycott of Israel in support of Palestinian rights, and for freedom, justice and equality.
