Pro-Palestinian Groups Hold Protest During Israel Philharmonic Concert
Pro-Palestinian groups held an anti-Israel demonstration outside a Buenos Aires theater during a charity concert by the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra.
The Federation of Palestine-Argentinian institutions and the Association for Human Rights in Palestine released a statement saying, Israel "kills one Palestinian child every three days" and that Israel is doing an "ethnic cleansing of the Palestinian people."
According to reports, the demonstration did not affect the performance by the orchestra and conducter Zubin Metha for the Tzedaka Foundation.
The Israel Philharmonic Orchestra performed in a Tango Dance Festival and World Cup of Tango in a free concert at Puente Alsina Public Park before a crowd of 20,000.
