In the wake of terror attacks by Hamas on Israel, and decades of oppression of Palestinians by Israel, Arab designer Dina Benbrahim created this poster to share on social media and her community in Arkansas. Her Instagram caption:

As Yousef Munayyer wrote in Jewish Currents, Palestinians advocate for “a state in which Palestinians can live in their homeland as free and equal citizens, neither dominated by others nor dominating them. When we call for a free Palestine from the river to the sea, it is precisely the existing system of domination that we seek to end.”

I’m against all systems of oppression and for the liberation of all people to exist freely without facing discrimination. The genocide happening in Palestine is horrifying and a human issue. This poster is in support of the voices of Palestinians who have been fighting against oppression of all kinds for years now.

She later added in a message:

I, too, dream of worlds without oppression, where all can live in peace as equal citizens.

The Arabic type is set in Lifta, a font by Omaima Dajani who is from East Jerusalem. The typeface was named after the Palestinian village destroyed in the 1948 occupation.

Benbrahim supplied a PDF so anyone can print their own.
