JERUSALEM, September 8, 2011 (WAFA) – The Israeli police Thursday prevent the joint Spanish-Brazilian Festiclown group from performing at a school in Sheikh Said village, South of Jerusalem, according witness.
Festiclown director, Ivan Prado, said that the Israeli police prevented him and his troupe from entering the school under the pretext they did not have a permit to perform there.
He said the ban will only increase their determination to continue the show in the Palestinian Territory.
Festiclown, which is composed by a group who act as clowns, was supposed to perform for school children to entertain them, but ban denied the students of the school, which is isolated by the apartheid wall, from enjoying themselves.
The show, titled “red nose soldiers,” came to Palestine to face the Israeli occupation with laughter by carrying out street performances as well as acts in schools, theaters and hospitals throughout the West Bank.
