A brand-new song and music video entitled “Freedom for Palestine” hit the internet this week, and has already received tens of thousands of hits and an endorsement from Coldplay, one of the top pop-rock bands in the world.
The video features Maxi Jazz and Dave Randall from Faithless, the British electronica band that publicly endorsed the Palestinian-led call for boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) against Israel by canceling a planned gig in Tel Aviv and issuing a public statement explaining their political position. Also lending their talents to the song are musicians from LSK, the Durban Gospel Choir, members of the London Community Gospel Choir, Jamie Catto of 1 Giant Leap, and other international artists. Those in the musical collective are calling themselves “OneWorld.”
The project is being supported by a number of well-known human rights organizations working for justice in Palestine. OneWorld states on their webpage that proceeds will go towards the UK charity War on Want, “for projects in Palestine.”
