No Army, No Prison, And No Wall Can Stop Us

noarmyweb1No 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 made this comic for David Mazzuchelli’s class given the assignment “a 4 page biography.”

God Bless Unlimited Print Queues: Zines Are Back In Print!

stacks of comics baby!After some time of having sold out of all my copies, I’m happy to report that my two comics zines made for the BDS movement (Old Abdullah Had A Farm–A Sing-A-Long Introduction To BDS made with Adalah-NY and Nothing Normal About It! Normalization, Dialogue and Palestine on Campus made with Tanya Keilani for Students For Justice In Palestine) are back in print–I have 60 copies of each of them that I will be selling at the release party for the new issue of World War 3 Illustrated and other upcoming events.

Since my old website crashed, these comics are no longer online, but I will work on getting them up in some form soon. If you are a student or BDS organizer get in touch if you want the files to print your own copies of these comics, which are designed to function as organizing tools. I also sell printed copies for $1 each.
Get in touch if you want to order some by mail.
