Sepultura slam authorities after they’re banned from performing in Lebanon

Sepultura have expressed their “deep dissatisfaction” with Lebanese authorities after they were barred from entering the country.

They were due to perform at Beruit’s The Palace – Aresco Center this week, but were denied entry by the country’s general security office, who refused to process their visas.

Organiser Skull Session pressed authorities to find out the reasons why and were told it was due to the band “insulting Christianity, that the band members are devil worshipers, that they held a concert in Israel and that they filmed a video clip supporting Israel.”

Now Sepultura have issued a statement of their own, which reads: “On behalf of Sepultura and staff, we would like to express to our public in Beirut our deep dissatisfaction with the situation to which we were submitted by the general security office, which resulted in the cancellation of our show that would take place on Sunday.

“In 35 years of history, it was the first time we had our entry blocked in a country by a false interpretation of our purposes and values since our intention has always been to promote unity and freedom of expression through music, without making any political, racial or religious distinction.

“To try to compensate everyone who, like us, are frustrated with what happened, we would like to invite you to watch the live broadcast of our upcoming Dubai concert on May 2 in honour of all Sepultura Lebanese fans who could not watch us in person.”

The stream will begin at 10pm Lebanese time (8pm BST) and will be available to watch via Sepultura’s YouTube channel.

The beginning of Salvation

I’m glad that my articles had readers from more than 60 countries especially from USA, Canada, UK, Argentina, China, Indonesia, Australia, India, all European countries, South Africa, Nigeria, the Middle East: Lebanon, Syria, Palestine and Israel, I was also surprised and happy by readers from religious countries like Saudi Arabia.

Probably we care for freedom, peace, knowledge and progress more than anything else, that’s why we are here.

Freethought is the key of peace

During the last few years, we experience a huge conversion towards freethought, it is surely the near future of the human thought.

As knowledge spreads, constraints fall and freedom and peace prevail.

Science is the knowledge of our reality

Gods and demons do nothing, what keeps us creative and alive is the progress of our knowledge, what mostly kills people is ignorance.

As religions and politics win and fail, science always builds it’s way.

Free your mind, look to the truth, that scientists and freethinkers reveal for you.

We have experienced this free and true knowledge, what we do is simply what any responsible brother, sister, parent or leader must do!

We spread science, defend freedom, and expect something good and beautiful.
