Nine artists competing at Eurovision 2024 have signed a public letter calling for an “immediate and lasting ceasefire” in Gaza. The signatories are:

  • Ireland’s Bambie Thug
  • Norway’s Gåte
  • Portugal’s Iolanda
  • San Marino’s Megara
  • Switzerland’s Nemo
  • The U.K.’s Olly Alexander
  • Denmark’s Saba
  • Lithuania’s Silvester Belt
  • Finland’s Windows95Man 

Their letter, which was uploaded to Instagram, among other places, is reprinted in full below.

“We want to begin by acknowledging the privilege of taking part in Eurovision.

In light of the current situation in the Occupied Palestinian Territories, and particularly in Gaza, and in Israel, we do not feel comfortable being silent.

It is important to us to stand in solidarity with the oppressed and communicate our heartfelt wish for peace, an immediate and lasting ceasefire, and the safe return of all hostages. We stand united against all forms of hate, including antisemitism and islamophobia.

We firmly believe in the unifying power of music, enabling people to transcend differences and foster meaningful conversations and connections.

We feel that it is our duty to create and uphold this space, with a strong hope that it will inspire greater compassion and empathy.”

Olly Alexander among the Eurovision 2024 artists who sign letter calling for Gaza ceasefire

The letter from Eurovision 2024 artists comes a day after the Queers for Palestine group called for the U.K.’s Olly Alexander to withdraw from the competition over Israel’s participation. They posted an open letter, which was signed by 450 queer artists, individuals and organisations. 

“We share the vision of queer joy and abundance you’ve offered through your music, and share your belief in collective liberation for all,” it read. “In this spirit, we ask you to heed the Palestinian call to withdraw from Eurovision …There can be no party with a state committing apartheid and genocide. At a time when accountability is so urgently needed, Israel’s inclusion in Eurovision would enable and cover up its war crimes and crimes against humanity.”

The letter from the Eurovision 2024 artists has divided opinion and elicited strong feelings on all sides of the issue.

Amit Harari, an Israeli news anchor, replied:

“You forgot 1,400 people murdered, raped and burnt in their beds, at a music festival and at their bases on a holiday Saturday morning by terrorists without any previous aggression.”

“You forgot many details. You’re welcome to stay in your comfortable London home and leave your nose out of things you don’t know much about. Dizzy is a great song, by the way. Focus on that.”

Meanwhile, the musician OGGIE applauded Olly’s decision to remain in the competition, writing:

“I’m happy to see that you haven’t allowed the public to make up your mind for you. Being open about where you stand and still representing the U.K. is more powerful of a statement than disappearing, looking forward to you living your dreams.”

On Friday, two hours after sharing the Eurovision 2024 letter co-signed by eight other Eurovision acts, Olly posted another Instagram letter, directly addressing the Queers for Palestine letter. He said he sent the following response to them directly, but wanted to share it in full with the public alongside the collective artist statement. 

“I wholeheartedly support action being taken to demand an immediate and permanent ceasefire in Gaza, the return of all hostages and the safety and security of all civilians in Palestine and Israel.

I know some people will choose to boycott this year’s Eurovision and I understand and respect their decision.

As a participant I’ve taken a lot of time to deliberate over what to do and the options available to me. It is my current belief that removing myself from the contest wouldn’t bring us any closer to our shared goal.
Instead, I’ve been speaking with some of the other EV contestants and we’ve decided that by taking part we can use our platform to come together and call for peace.

I hope and pray that our calls are answered and there is an end to the atrocities we are seeing taking place in Gaza.

I’d like to thank the many signatories of this letter whose work I deeply admire and respect and hope that we can continue to work together in creating a better world for all of us.”

To those who say Israel would be destroyed if they didn’t eliminate Hmas (Roy), I see your country launched an air strike on the consulate of Iran in Syria today. A violation of TWO sovereign jurisdictions. If it was an Israeli consulate/embassy that was destroyed in an air strike it would have been called a terror1st attack and Israel would have had to respond just like 7/10. However it’s okay because it was Iran and Syria yeah? THIS IS WHY ISRAEL IS ATTACKED and why the likes of you, Roy, don’t feel safe there. Tell your government to stop picking… Read more »

7/10 was a terror attack, but do to us airstriking the consulate of a country in another.

“ one cannot just go about and tell a sovereign country what to do and how to defend themselves”. Tell that to Israel they seem to like doing it.
Hopefully Iran and Syria don’t respond now, though I guess it would be their fault if they did.

Dude, Jews have been discriminated against since forever. Literally. They cannot live in peace in their own homeland. Unlike the Irish, Spanish and Italian and English and German and Lebanese and Norwegian and Japanese and Chinese folk etc who’ve left their own countries to go to the Americas for example, historically speaking, Jews have actually returned to their ancestral land. Go back to the spin-offs of Judaism and core European and ME history and you’ve got it on a platter. You don’t even have to think too much. It’s all there.

The Irish experience was due to persecution actually.

Not to mention the genoc1de that was the famine. But after independence, those who were of settler ancestry fled persecution.
There was also penal laws introduced on the island during occupation by which catholics couldn’t practice their religion, couldn’t speak Irish etc.
during the struggle for independence, the British forces (Black and Tans) burned down whole towns and cities (Cork) as collective punishment.

So not just Jews as you say.

I was talking about the context of the world wars specifically in regard to the Jewish population and the atrocities of the wars where *various* countries, *collectively* persecuted and punished them.

Nevertheless, the plight of the Irish was serious and so was that of the Ukrainian (famine as well) in their times and they are shameful in the European history and something to be acknowledged.

Besides those who already lived here before 1948, Jews came here from Europe – because of antisemitism and world war 2, some (like my family) came from different Arab/Muslim countries, from Africa and Asia, because of antisemitism of course, some from countries southern to those in Africa, such as Ethiopia, Eritrea, and from many other nations.

The difference is that antisemitism literally leads to the killing of many Jews and Israelis (even non Jews) while islamophobia, at the moment, not as much.

The show’s host in 1969 even had to ask “Mr. Brown” live on camera what she should do with the trophy at the end! We may laugh at it today, but it was a hugely divisive moment at the time.

The time to withdraw from the contest in protest over Israel was earlier this year, before any entries were chosen. Unfortunately, the broadcasters all had no balls and pushed the responsibility of deciding to go to Eurovision on the chosen artist.
