Stevie Wonder: Don't play at the IDF gala fundraiser in LA on Dec. 6th!

If Stevie Wonder would cancel his appearance and publicly state the reason, it could raise valuable public awareness of the tragedy of Palestine.

(ROME) - We call on Stevie Wonder, as a conscientious American advocate for human rights and dignity not to support the Israeli Defense Force by performing at their gala fundraiser.

In the face of over 60 years of Israeli colonization of Palestinian land and the disenfranchisement of the Palestinian people and in the wake of Israel's latest violent aggression against the Palestinians in the Gaza Strip-- we ask you NOT to support the IDF.

The IDF is an institution which promotes, enables, and protects Israel's Apartheid regime. You were arrested in 1985 protesting South African Apartheid, now we ask you: please remember that apartheid is apartheid, whether it comes from White Afrikaaner settlers of South Africa or from Jewish Israelis in Israel.

Desmond Tutu has recognized that Israel's Apartheid is worse than South Africa's-- will you stand with us against apartheid and cancel your performance at the IDF fundraiser?
