Artists Rap UNESCO

Download PDF for this date

The Artists Equity Association of New York has appealed to American member associations to withhold cooperation with UNESCO until UNESCO ends its exclusion of Israel. In a resolution, the board of the association said it was joining “the growing number of American writers, artists and scientists in expressing its shock and dismay” over the UNESCO actions. The board said the actions had changed UNESCO “from the world’s most important independent, non-partisan cultural body into an organ of political confrontation, contrary to its basic nature and reason for having been brought into being.” The association asked member organizations of UNESCO to rescind the actions.
