During his performance at Tyler the Creator's Camp Flog Gnaw Carnival music festival in Los Angeles, US rapper Redveil wore a Palestinian traditional scarf, the Keffiyeh, and used the stage to advocate for a ceasefire in Gaza.
He displayed the names of children killed in Gaza due to ongoing Israeli strikes and ground invasion since October 7. With more than 11,000 casualties in Gaza, over 4,000 of them children, Redveil emphasized the tragic impact, stating, "Behind me is a list of names of Palestinians that's been killed in Gaza since October 7. Nobody on this list made it to the age of four." The festival, featuring headliners like SZA, Kendrick Lamar, and Tyler the Creator, took place at Dodger Stadium.
He said: “I know if you’re f*cking human, you’re gonna feel somebody saying this sh*t. It’s not complicated. Don’t let nobody tell you that sh*t.”
Getting his audience to take action, Redveil directed them to visit Ceasefire Today, a website providing prompts to contact Congress, sign petitions, and locate local protests. Encouraging concertgoers to engage in civic participation, he urged them to call their representatives and advocate for a ceasefire in Gaza through the available resources on the website.
The rapper said: “Call your reps, demand a ceasefire.” On X, he encouraged other artists to speak up.
“If you don’t have service, take a picture, write it down, alright.” He then led the crowd in a chant of “free Palestine.”
