Micah Bazant, "Gaza Will Be Free"
Created during the 2014 Israeli attack on Gaza. Year: 2014; Medium: 11x17, mixed media. Available for purchase.
Statement: When I was in Palestine, I learned about the saber – the prickly pear/nopal cactus originally from Mexico - as a symbol of indigenous resilience and resistance. The saber are/were used as natural fences. I saw them growing up again where Israeli bulldozers had flattened entire towns - they'd show a ghost map of where Palestinian homes had been. I believe the terror and apartheid of zionism will end and free Palestine will rise, just like the beautiful saber.

Ezra Berkley Nepon; "Suck My Treyf Gender" Poster.
This Queer Anti-Imperialist Purim Cabaret was held in Philadelphia in 2003, organized by myself and other members of Feygeles for a Free Palestine. The event raised funds for two Palestine-solidarity organizations. The poster includes two footnotes: 1) Treyf - Yiddish for not kosher; impure; forbidden food, sometimes used as a synonym for queerness; 2) Purim - Jewish holiday. A carnival-like celebration about overcoming fascist powers-that-be, embracing extremes, and in this case, celebrating Palestinians' rights to self determination. Year: 2003; Poster design/silkscreen printing by Courtney Daily. More about the event in "Wrestling with Esther: Purim Spiels, Gender, and Political Dissidence."
