The Scottish protests against Brand Israel assets Batsheva were sustained and vigorous, both for the hundreds outside the Edinburgh Playhouse and the 30 protestors inside the auditorium over the three nights. The Israeli Ambassador to the UK and Netanyahu’s Minister of Culture attended on the opening night to underline the nature of Brand Israel in whitewashing Israeli crimes.
