Imaging Apartheid - Palestine poster project !

Imaging Apartheid is a Montreal-based initiative with a global reach aimed at
bringing awareness and support to the Palestinian struggle for liberation
through the production and dissemination of poster art. We are a small
collective of artists and activists who strongly believe in the intersection of
art and politics as a means of advancing social change. Though this project?s
focus is on the pressing issue of Israeli Apartheid, we also recognize the
development of a global state of apartheid and aim to contribute to the
dialogue of resistance against it.

Recently Imaging Apartheid launched our first four silk screen poster prints in
collaboration with Justseeds Artists' Cooperative, which are all now available
to order on-line via the links below. If you are involved with an activist
collective, group or organization that would like to distribute or put up
Imaging Apartheid posters in your city please do get in touch at

"Always remain standing no matter what happens" -- This design is part of a
poster series originally published in a Lebanese newsprint periodical
documenting the crimes and criminals of apartheid Palestine. The theme involved
daily life in Palestine, with references to those profiting from the occupation
of Palestine. Lebanese proverbs are used to show solidarity and speak
metaphorically of the eventual triumph of justice.
