Loathe, Kharma, Soul Glo, Zulu, and more show support for 'Black Power For Palestinian Liberation'
Loathe, Kharma, Soul Glo, Zulu, and more are supporting the Black Power For Palestinian Liberation campaign. The shirt's proceeds will go entirely to the Palestinian Youth Movement and the Palestinian Red Crescent Society. Zulu's Anaiah Lei co-designed the shirt, taking a firm stance against Israel and "Western imperialist powers."
The campaign's mission statement describes Israel as a "settler colonial Zionist occupier" and advocates for the freedom of those colonized by the West. This has sparked heated debates on social media posts by the bands.
The above mentioned mission statement reads:
For over 75 years, the fight for Palestinian Liberation has been intertwined with Black people's fight for Freedom. Together, we fight back against the same Western Imperialist powers. We will not be free until Palestine and all those whom the West colonizes are also free. We remain rooted in tradition and unwavering solidarity with the people of Palestine as they continue to resist genocide by their settler colonial Zionist occupier in Israel and fight for their sovereignty. Remaining silent while our comrades fight back against a Zionist settlement is not an option; we share the common objective of liberation for all people. Black Power FOR Palestinian Liberation.
