Shuggie Otis cancels gig in apartheid, Israel



Deep respect and gratitude go out to Shuggie Otis.  Auris Media reported that Shuggie Otis has cancelled his gig in Israel planned for May 1, 2013.  Boycott activists had contacted the legendary musician best known for "Strawberry Letter 23."  Otis has not made a statement as of yet regarding his decision.  The global movement for a cultural boycott of Israel applauds his choice not to violate the Palestinian call for Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) against Israel's policies of colonialism, occupation and apartheid towards the Palestinian people.

The May 1 performance in Tel Aviv, has been removed from Otis' official website.  Otis continues to tour and perform worldwide.
