Gazavision, the event at which Okasha played on Tuesday, was an event protesting against Israel hosting the 2019 Eurovision song contest."
"The day was organised by Palestine Action Group Sydney and BDS Australia. Protestors demanded the right of return for all Palestinians and a boycott of this year’s Eurovision Song Contest which is to beheld in Tel Aviv this weekend. Protesters were accompanied by a giant Palestinian flag while enthusiastic chants including, “from the river to the sea/Palestine will be free” could be heard amongst the crowd."
