‘Harry Potter’ star shows support for Palestinians

‘Harry Potter’ star Emma Watson voices solidarity with the Palestinian people against the Israeli occupation in an Instagram post.

‘Harry Potter’ star Emma Watson has voiced solidarity with the Palestinian people and their cause against the Israeli occupation in a post on her social media account.

On Monday, the British actress shared a picture, which shows a sign reading "solidarity is a verb" on the background of a "Justice for Palestine" protest in May, to her Instagram account.

In the caption, there is a quote from British-Australian activist Sara Ahmed that says “Solidarity does not assume that our struggles are the same struggles, or that our pain is the same pain, or that our hope is for the same future. Solidarity involves commitment, and work, as well as the recognition that even if we do not have the same feelings, or the same lives, or the same bodies, we do live on common ground.”

The picture was originally posted in May last year by the Bad Activism Collective after Israel launched an offensive on the besieged Gaza Strip.

Watson, who is known for her role as Hermione Granger in the Harry Potter movies, is also a UN Women Goodwill Ambassador.

Her post was hailed by many social media users.
