A post shared by Alessandra (@alessandram02)

Tonight I was supposed to give out Norway’s points during the Eurovision final, even though I am thankful that I was given the opportunity to do so, I’ve taken the decision to withdraw. United by music, Eurovision’s motto is the reason why I do music, unite people bring them together, but right now those words are just empty words there is a genocide going on and I am asking you all to please open up your eyes, open up your heart and let love lead you to the truth it’s right in front of you. Free Palestine!
