You’ve Got to See Our Nakba Ads in NYC

May 19th, 2008

This past weekend, the US Campaign to End the Israeli Occupation began a month-long advertising campaign in New York City to raise awareness about the 60th anniversary of the Nakba.

Over the course of the next month, more than 1,000 of these posters will be displayed on the streets of Manhattan, educating New Yorkers about the ethnic cleansing of Palestine in 1948 and the right of return for Palestinian refugees.

We need your support to continue our creative educational programs on the Nakba and other projects such as challenging military aid to Israel, running corporate accountability campaigns against Motorola and Caterpillar, and organizing a high-profile anti-apartheid speaking tour this fall.

Donate $20 or more today and we’ll send you a suitable-to-frame copy of our Nakba awareness ad.Please make your generous tax-deductible donation now by clicking here.

The ads in New York have been strategically placed to coincide with the route of the June 1st “Salute to Israel Parade” so that everyone coming to celebrate Israel will be reminded (or educated) that Israel was established through an act of ethnic cleansing.If you appreciate these types of educational efforts, then please make a generous tax-deductible contribution to keep us going by clicking here.

The poster featured in our New York ad campaign is a version of the winning poster design entry from our Expressions of Nakba multi-media arts competition.The poster was created by Ildiko Toth, a Hungarian-born graphic designer who is married to a Palestinian man trapped in the Gaza Strip for more than one year.To see the original poster design and learn more about the artist, click here.You can also read a feature story about Ildiko and Expressions of Nakba in The National (U.A.E.) by clicking here.
