Though the Gorillaz aren't "real" per se, their protest is... they are one of a handful of bands who are protesting. Plenty of bands use previously planned shows as political statements... look at Arizona. Now several notable acts are pulling out of Israel's Pic.Nic festival in protest of incidents from last weekend:

"On May 30, Israeli military raided a flotilla carrying activists and humanitarian aid to the blockaded Gaza region, killing nine foreign activists... . According to festival organizers, the cancellations are related to the naval raid." [Pitchfork]
