Help us tell Carlos Santana to stand up for Palestinian children and cancel his July 30 Tel Aviv concert!

Carlos Santana is scheduled to cross the international picket line called for by Palestinian civil society and perform for apartheid on July 30. Santana has not responded to multiple attempts to contact him by the Palestinian Academic and Cultural Boycott of Israel (PACBI) and partners. On June 28 a delegation of Middle East Children’s Alliance (MECA) and Jewish Voice for Peace (JVP) members, including Palestinian families with children, attempted to deliver a petition signed by 25,000 people urging musician Carlos Santana to respect the call for a cultural boycott of Israelin support of Palestinian human rights and cancel his upcoming concert in Tel Aviv.

The petition was delivered to Santana’s Milagro Foundation, which he founded in 1998 and is devoted to helping “underserved and vulnerable children around the world.” Staff at the office had not responded to several requests for an appointment, refused to open the door when the delegation arrived, and closed the blinds.

Take action this week to amplify the boycott call before Santana heads on his tour. The name of his foundation means miracle and was inspired by the image of children as divine miracles of light and hope. Let Santana know Palestinian children are miracles too who need him to stand up for their rights!
