Celebrities, Activists Appear in New Video Promoting 'Black-Palestinian Solidarity'

A group of black celebrities, protestors from the Black Lives Matter movement, and Palestinian political activists have just released a video that compares Palestinians killed by Israeli forces and settlers with blacks in America who have been killed by police.

The video, titled “When I See Them I See Us,” was released by a range of African-American and Palestine-solidarity groups.  The video features over 60 people, including singer Lauryn Hill, actor Danny Glover, writers Alice Walker and Angela Davis, Cornel West, and rapper Boots Riley. They are joined by Palestinian figures such as academic Noura Erekat, poet Remi Kanazi, and Omar Barghouti. Barghouti is a founding member of the Palestinian Campaign for the Academic and Cultural Boycott of Israel.

In the video, several people appear with signs that indicate how a person was killed, either in Israel or the United States. "They Choked Me On Video," says the sign held by Danny Glover. "I Said I Couldn't Breathe." Lauryn Hill holds a sign that reads “Free All Political Prisoners.” Earlier this year Hill canceled a planned performance in Israel. Hill said that she wanted to play both Israel and Palestine, but when the doing a show in Palestine proved difficult logistically she decided to cancel both dates.
