Dedication of 3 Murals – International Solidarity w/ Palestine

Please join Clarion Alley Mural Project on Sunday, October 14th at 2 PM on Clarion Alley for the dedication of three new murals in solidarity with Palestine:

1. The Will to Live – Arab Liberation Mural
2. Bangkit Palestine (Arise Palestine)
3. End Apartheid B.D.S.

The Will to Live-Arab Liberation Mural celebrates tenacious Bay Area organizing against oppression. The mural features the portraits of five courageous Arab leaders who spent their lives speaking truth to power: Rasmea Odeh, Mehdi Ben Barka, Naji Daifullah, Leila Khaled, Basel Al Araj and Yasser Murtaja. Organized by Art Forces, Arab Resource and Organizing Center (AROC), Arab Youth Organizing (AYO!) with Clarion Alley Mural Project (CAMP), Priya Handa, Chris Ghazala, Nidal El Khairy, Margaret Marie, Fred Alvarado.

As part of Bangkit/Arise, an international arts exchange and residency between artists from the San Francisco/Bay Area and Yogyakarta, Indonesia. The participating Indonesian artists and two of the SF/Bay Area artists completed a memorial mural in honor of the 166 (to date) Palestinians killed by the State of Israel since The Great March of Return protests began on March 30, 2018 in the Gaza Strip. Bangkit/Arise stands in solidarity with Palestinians for peace, justice, and the right of return and claim to their land.

End Apartheid B.D.S.
Bangkit/Arise artist and CAMP co-director Megan Wilson replaced her recent mural on Clarion Alley with one also in solidarity with this effort as part of Bangkit/Arise – entitled: End Apartheid B.D.S.
