Eurovision Song Contest
Kate Miller-Heidke is set to be the Australian contestant in the next Eurovision Song Contest to be held in Tel Aviv. If she performs in Israel she will be helping the Israeli propaganda machine ‘art-wash’ apartheid. We would encourage people to respectfully point out to her why they think she should not attend, especially as a ‘representative’ of Australia. Apartheid is in no way consistent with Australian values.
