CNN: Rehire Marc Lamont Hill

On November 29, 2018, Dr. Marc Lamont Hill was fired from CNN for a speech he gave to the United Nations in support of Palestinian rights. 

Help us tell CNN they did the wrong thing. Tell CNN to rehire Dr. Hill!

Dear CNN,

You made the wrong choice by firing Marc Lamont Hill for his speech at the UN, which included the phrase "from the river to the sea." Speaking up for Palestinian rights is not anti-semitic or a threat to Israelis.

As Dr. Hill said in regard to the speech he gave to the UN that caused him to be fired:

“My reference to “river to the sea” was not a call to destroy anything or anyone. It was a call for justice, both in Israel and in the West Bank/Gaza. The speech very clearly and specifically said those things. No amount of debate will change what I actually said or what I meant.”

Dr. Hill’s speech received a long ovation from the diplomats at the UN.

Marc Lamont Hill is a powerful defender of civil and human rights for all people. He is a powerful ally for the Palestinian people who live under siege, under military occupation and under state laws of discrimination.

As people concerned with freedom for the Palestinian people and justice and equality for all people, we ask that you immediately rehire Marc Lamont Hill.

    We can’t afford to lose Marc Lamont Hill’s valuable commentary on national issues at such a critical time. The continuing overpolicing of those who speak against Israeli policy and its conflation with anti-Semitism only feeds actual anti-Jewish sentiment. Firing Hill communicates that an uncritical commitment to supporting Israeli policy—no matter what— trumps all other concerns including pressing justice issues in our own country. This is shameful CNN and you should be ashamed. Rehire Marc Lamont Hill.

    Supporting the Palestinian people who live under siege and under military occupation is not anti-semitic, iIt is anti-Isreali governmental Policy.

    Please rehire Dr. Hill. If you refuse I will never watch CNN ever again.
