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.

    That’s like firing someone who spoke out against Hitler during WW2! Zionism, just like Nazism, must be defeated. CNN must not encourage Nazism nor Zionism.

    It’s sad to see a national news broadcaster that stood up for the truth fire Mr Hill because he spoke what he was hired for. I pray you will do the right thing ASAP. Citizens concern

    CNN, you stand for balanced reporting and are holding the White House to account in amazing ways! The Palestinian struggle for justice deserves no less tenacity and courage in its reporting. White washing Israel’s atrocities against Palestinians in the name of fear or fear of claims of anti-Semitism (a most abused and misused phrase) is cowardly, dishonest, and spineless. Dr. Hill did nothing but speak truth to a cause of justice. Reinstate him.
