NOW A WORD FROM SOMEONE DEMANDING TOLERANCE
BLM Co-Founder Called For An End To Israel
“End the imperialist project that’s called Israel.”
In April 2015, Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrisse Cullors told an audience at Harvard Law School that they should “end the imperialist project that’s called Israel.”
Speaking on a panel hosted by the Human Rights Program at Harvard, entitled “Globalizing Ferguson: Radicalized Policing and International Resistance,” Cullors stated:
I am also the co-founder of Black Lives Matter … What I will say, what’s important, I think, in this conversation around trans-national solidarity is that it’s simple. We should be building relationships with people across the world. If we believe we are part of the human family, then we need to push ourselves in particular ways to see the connections always. The other thing I’ll say is Palestine is our generation’s South Africa, and if we don’t step up boldly and courageously to end the imperialist project that’s called Israel, we’re doomed.
Cullors then referenced the recent trip she had made with a group called “Dream Defenders” to Israel, claiming, “Nothing would’ve prepared me for the level of militarization and the level of violence that we would witness”
