Pull-out protests

Credit to the likes of Gwenno and Shopping for pulling out of performing at Pop-Kultur in Berlin on the grounds that the music festival has ties to the Israeli embassy in Germany. By withdrawing, they are simultaneously demonstrating solidarity with the Boycott, Divestment And Sanctions (BDS) movement - whose most prominent supporters include Brian Eno, Roger Waters and Thurston Moore - and showing up Radiohead and Nick Cave for their errors of judgement in playing shows in Israel.
