Spanish City Oviedo Rescinds Invitation to Israeli Orchestra, Ballet Amid Support Surge for BDS

The Spanish city of Oviedo disinvited an Israeli orchestra and ballet group arguing “Israeli organizations are not wanted” in its premises in yet another victory for the pro-Palestinian Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement.

Presentations by the orchestra and ballet group were scheduled for this autumn, in the city’s cultural program, but Monday an Israeli news site reported the cancellation over political reasons. 

Last week, the city of Valencia approved a motion proposed by progressive party Podemos, to declare itself as an “Israeli apartheid-free zone,” becoming the largest city in the world to do so.
