Today Palestinians face daily human rights abuse and live in crushing poverty in refugee camps and under Israeli Occupation.
In response to this injustice, a group of international musicians released the song Freedom for Palestine by OneWorld.
We sang that we wanted to "break down the wall" and together we have. We've broken the wall of silence on Palestine in the music industry by releasing the first ever mainstream single in solidarity with Palestine.
From the muddy fields of Glastonbury to the occupied streets of Gaza we've inspired thousands of people around the world to dance and sing for justice for Palestine. We’ve made Fox anchor Glenn Beck cry, high street store LUSH got behind the campaign and Archbishop Desmond Tutu even came out of retirement to support us.
Musicians and artists such as Rogers Waters, Massive Attack, Lowkey, Mark Thomas, Julie Christie, Sami Yusuf, Ken Loach, and Billy Bragg have all got behind this historic challenge to the illegal Israeli Occupation.
