Oppressed Groups Relate to Avatar

Last week on Hyperallergic, I quoted a Chinese blog that noted how some Chinese relate to the movie Avatar:

Many Chinese identify themselves with the Na’vi tribe in the movie Avatar — the tribe which rises up against the evil, with the help of Mother Nature and the animal kingdom. Government stopped the screening of the 2D version and instead launched the movie Confucius.

Now, according to Mondoweiss via Informed Comment, a group of Palestinians have gone one step further:

And don’t miss the video of the protest.
