pbs 39811,000+ Black Artists & Scholars Declare Solidarity with Palestinians

More than 1,000 black activists, artists, scholars and students have signed on to a statement supporting “the liberation of Palestine’s land and people.”

Signatories include scholars Angela Davis and Cornel West, jailed journalist Mumia Abu-Jamal, hip
-hop artist Talib Kweli and Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrisse Cullors.

The statement endorses the Boycott, Divestment & Sanctions movement against Israel.

It specifically highlights private prison giant G4S as a target for the movement, because the company detains for profit Palestinians in Israel as well as people of color in the United States.
