"There is an international consensus around the fact that Israel’s occupation of Palestine is illegal. Palestinians living under military occupation and aparthe...id are denied their basic rights. I’ve been to Palestine myself and seen the effects of the occupation with my own eyes. As long as this goes on I will not perform in Israel”. - Olof Dreijer
Olof Dreijer, member of the Swedish duo The Knife, upon being asked to dj in Tel Aviv recently, supports the international cultural boycott of Israel, requested by the Palestinian Civil Society in a call for BDS (Boycott Divestment Sanctions) and supported by a growing international BDS movement. Organisations like The Palestinian Campaign for the Academic and Cultural Boycott of Israel, PACPI, and Queers against Israeli Pinkwashing, urge artists not to perform in Israel. Olof Dreijer and The Knife have supported this boycott for many years.
