Performance by singer Matisyahu cancelled

The Government of Spain regrets and reproves the cancellation of the performance by the singer Matisyahu at the reggae music festival ‘Rototom’ in Benicássim.

The imposition of the requirement to make a public statement, which was only imposed on him, constitutes an offensive form of action which, in so far as this was required of Matisyahu due to his Jewish beliefs, brings into question the principle of non-discrimination that is one of the bases for plural and diverse societies.

The government declares its understanding at the discontent expressed by the Jewish community and reiterates its rejection of all forms of anti-Semitism.

Furthermore, Spain reiterates its rejection of boycott campaigns in relation to Israel, as well as its firm position in favour of a negotiated solution to the conflict based on an independent State of Palestine that co-exists in peace and prosperity side-by-side Israel.
