Redfish released a new documentary project today, 27 November, highlighting anti-Palestinian repression throughout Europe, especially in Germany. The 25-minute video includes interviews with a number of organizers, artists and other justice activists for Palestine as well as representatives of Israel lobby organizations in Europe.
Khaled Barakat, the Palestinian leftist writer expelled from Germany in 2019 for his positions on Palestinian rights and Palestinian liberation – including support for the boycott of Israel – is interviewed at several points about the attack on organizers for justice in Palestine.
Other participants in the documentary include Majed Abusalama, Nirit Sommerfeld, Shir Hever, Giovanni Fassina and Susann Witt-Stahl, while documentary host Dan Glass explores attempts to suppress Palestine activism and the boycott movement.
“As the global far-right grows in size and influence, anti-Semitic attacks are on the rise and an ongoing concerted effort led by Israel’s government is working to frame Palestinian activist groups as the main culprit. redfish explores how allegations of anti-Semitism levelled against critics of Israeli policies are being weaponised to suppress and censor the global movement in support of Palestinian rights,” Redfish noted.
