In Palestine pt.17

July 15, 2013

The walls of Palestine are alive with messaging and communication, including layers of posters for cultural events, political martyrs, commercial advertisements, and election campaigns. While the martyr posters are mostly left to fade away, or eventually be covered by a new generation of martyrs, the election posters are regularly scratched, torn, and intervened in. Some of this might be done by Israeli settlers (especially in contested areas like Hebron), in other places it seems more likely it is done by fellow Palestinians frustrated by the failures of the political process.
