Bring the faces of Gaza families killed last summer to the streets!
One year after the beginning of the Israeli military offensive on the Gaza Strip, the situation on the ground in Gaza is appalling, and the victims wait for justice. Gaza is still the largest open-air prison in the world - under siege, occupied and subjected to ongoing Israeli attacks.
More than 2,200 Palestinians in Gaza were killed last summer by Israeli attacks, most of them civilians. More than 500 were children. 142 families lost three members or more. Some families were wiped out entirely. Some families lost members from three generations - grandparents, parents, and grandchildren.
Activestills' project, #ObliteratedFamilies, aims to shed light on these families and calls upon people of conscience to demand justice for the victims. It is intolerable to think that the survivors are left alone in the ruins with the pain of losing loved ones and no prospect of a better future.
For the last 10 years, the Activestills collective has been staging street exhibitions to raise awareness on important issues ignored or distorted by the mainstream media. We believe that the streets should be reclaimed for political discussion.
Activestills collective calls all upon activists and persons of conscience to spread these photos in their communities by making available an exhibition kit including digital images ready to be printed. The exhibit features family photos of those killed and portraits of survivors.
In return, we ask that you to send photos of the street exhibits, with the location so we can invite people to see it; and to put it on social media with the #ObliteratedFamilies.
If you have any problem downloading, for any questions, and to send your photos of the street exhibitions, send email to: firstname.lastname@example.org
