No Army, No Prison, And No Wall Can Stop Us
I saw the news yesterday that Abdullah Abu Rahmah, a protest organizer in the Palestinian village of Bil’in, was convicted yesterday in an Israeli military court of “obstructing the work of a soldier” by trying to stop a bulldozer from clearing land for the Wall near Beitunia. I was reminded of this comic I made in December of 2010, 4 years ago, about Abu Rahmah’s previous imprisonment at Israeli hands.
I made this comic for David Mazzuchelli’s class given the assignment “a 4 page biography.”
Read the rest of the comic after the jump
“Proposal for a Direct Action, Yom Kippur 5775,” by Ethan Heitner
Inspired by a weekend retreat for culture workers with Jewish Voice for Peace.
Made for the War Resisters’ League and their new campaign: facingteargas.org
Look, I made a zine about cultural boycott, using my comics from Mondoweiss and information from the website of Adalah-NY and PACBI, as well as other illustrations, poetry and bits and pieces I found!
