BBC News report

Naomi Wimborne-Idrissi, co-ordinator with the Boycott Israel Network,
said: “This campaign is not an attack on individual artists; we are
not censoring the content of their work nor are we concerned about
their ethnicity or the language they speak.

“As with South African sport in the apartheid era, this is about
refusing to allow culture to be used to whitewash oppression.”

Protester Zoe Mars said: “We tried non-violently to convey the message
that culture may not be used to give a civilised gloss to a state that
perpetrates human rights abuses.”

Guardian news report

In March, the Globe’s former artistic director Mark Rylance was among
a number of signatories to an open letter, published in The Guardian,
