The 'European Glastonbury' makes a strong point...
ROSKILDE festival started in Denmark yesterday (July 1) amid political protest.
This year the festival, dubbed the European Glastonbury, has a 25ft high copy of the Israeli security fence built as a political protest, according to the BBC.
The replica was built by the charity Dan Church Aid with the inscription ‘Make Peace, Not Walls’, near the main stage. It is a protest against the security fence the Israelis erected between Israel and Palestianian Authority land.
Said a spokesman for the charity: “We have taken a political stand, but we are not opposed to the Israeli state. We have to react, because this wall entails serious humanitarian consequences for Palestinians whose land has been confiscated.”
