Each one of us will respond to a greater or lesser degree to a historical moment, a place, a movement, to express our solidarity. But one does not need to recount at every point all the ills that beset the world's nation-states and thus cancel every political call on that basis.Vivan Sundaram, in the Hindu, 6 August 2011.
For context, see Girish Shahane's posts on N. Pushpamala's call for a boycott of a show in Israel. (Shahane, of course, clearly doesn't support cultural boycotts of any kind.)
