It recently came to our attention that there was a planned event to screen the Eurovision Song Contest on Saturday May 18th.
Following their win in 2018, Israel is expected to host this year’s contest.
With our Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions (BDS) policy within Strath Union, supporting human rights and ensuring fair representation is at the heart of what we do.
In order to adhere to our BDS policy, we stand in solidarity with the Palestinian people and, therefore, the event will not go ahead.
