Carrie Crowley on why she's supporting a boycott of the Eurovision in Israel next year

Former Eurovision presenter Carrie Crowley was speaking at a gathering of campaigners at the Ha'penny Bridge today, calling for a boycott of the Eurovision in Israel next year.Over 3,300 people, mostly Irish artists and media personalities, have signed their petition to support the boycott, including Eurovision commentator Mike Murphy, former Eurovision winner Charlie McGettigan, music legends Christy Moore and Frances Black, and Senator David Norris.They believe that Israel’s hosting of the Eurovision will be used to "culturally whitewash and ‘pinkwash’ Israel’s atrocious record of seven decades of war crimes and human rights abuses against the Palestinian people."
