In Solidarity with Gaza: Lupe Fiasco at Austin City Limits

Revelers and high flyers filled Austin's streets last night on the eve of the Grand Prix formula one races, and Austin City Limits hosted hundreds of  fans who came to hear Lupe Fiasco perform.  Above is a short clip of Lupe's opening song, in which he states that the Gaza Strip is being bombed... once again (at 2:45)
Some fans stood in the front center of the stage, and held the Palestinian flag up during the concert.  Near the end of Lupe's energy driven performance, he stated he would pray for some names passed to him on a list from the audience, most likely names of victims of Israel's latest bombardment of Gaza.
