British Professors and Artists Publish Statement Calling for Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions of Israel
The January 16, 2009 issue of The Guardian newspaper published a statement signed by 300 professors that condems Israel's assault on Gaza and calls for the "British government and the British people to take all feasible steps to oblige Israel to comply with these demands, starting with a programme of boycott, divestment and sanctions." Over 25 British artists, musicians, writers and filmmakers, including Stephen Frears and Brian Eno signed the following statement: "We regard Israel's indiscriminate killing in Gaza as a crime against humanity. We protest against Israel's exterminating tactics and offer our wholehearted support to the people of Gaza."
