Freedom for Palestine

Jun 01, 2011

I recently visited the West Bank with War on Want and what I saw there convinced me that it is time for musicians to stand up for Palestine.

As a child growing up in Britain, the struggle against apartheid in South Africa seemed a long way away. But it felt closer when I heard the song ‘Free Nelson Mandela’. Apartheid in South Africa has fallen, but something similar remains in Palestine. So I invited some of my bandmates from Faithless to join members of the London Community Gospel Choir, the Durban Gospel Choir and musicians from around the world to release a song in solidarity with Palestine.

You can watch the music video and find out how to pre-order your copy here.

If we get ‘Freedom for Palestine’ into the UK charts, we’ll be sending a message to politicians that the oppression of the Palestinian people and the Occupation must end. But this will only happen with your support. I hope you will not only buy the single but get involved in the campaign in the coming weeks.

Together we can make history in 2011.

Thank you.

Dave Randall
