The American singer Lana Del Rey canceled a planned concert in Israel under pressure from pro-Palestinian organizations, justifying her decision by the fact that she had not had time to organize a concert in Palestine at the same time, according to The Guardian. The young woman's coming to Israel had provoked a pro-Palestinian campaign to cancel her performance. She was to be the star of the Meteor Festival in Upper Galilee scheduled for September 6-8 in Israel. But most of the Palestinian fans of the singer will be unable to attend the festival.
"It's important for me to sing in both Palestine and Israel and treat all my fans fairly," the artist said on his Twitter account. Unfortunately, it was not possible to chain both tours for lack of time, so I postpone my performance to the Meteor Festival until I can schedule tours for both Israeli and Palestinian fans. . "
A petition from the pro-Palestinian BDS movement (Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions), which fights against the occupation of the Palestinian territories, had put pressure on the singer following her planned concert in Israel. After the cancellation of the concert, members of the movement thanked Lana Del Rey for her decision.
