Tomorrow, February 29, SLU Solidarity With Palestine is hosting a stop on photojournalist William Perry’s book tour. Here’s what they had to say:
William Parry, a London-based photojournalist who contributes regularly to the Washington Review of Middle East Affairs, is launching his book, Against the Wall: The Art of Resistance in Palestine, with a book tour in the USA. His stunning book of photos captures the graffiti and street art that has transformed Israel’s wall into a living canvas of resistance and solidarity. Featuring the work of artists including Banksy, Ron English, Swoon, Faile, Blu and others, as well as Palestinian artists and international grassroots activists, these photos express outrage, compassion, solidarity, peaceful resistance and touching humor. They mirror the wall’s toll on lives and livelihoods and are coupled with interviews that show the hardship it has brought to tens of thousands of Palestinians, preventing their access to work, education, families, vital medical care and places of worship.
The event is open to everyone. It’s in BSC room 254 from 6:30 PM – 8:30 PM.
