Against the Wall: The Art of Resistance in Palestine by William Parry

Tuesday, March 29, 2011 - 23:30 to Saturday, April 2, 2011 - 02:00


Israel's illegal separation wall has been transformed into the world's largest protest banner. William Parry, author of Against the Wall: The Art of Resistance in Palestine will give audiences a visual 'talking tour' of the stunning artwork and graffiti on the wall, and show how it mirrors the grim reality the wall has brought to Palestinian communities in the West Bank - but also how it reflects Palestinian resilience and determination to struggle for justice. The talks feature artwork by some of the West's best known street artists, like Banksy, Blu, Swoon, Ron English and Faile - as well as graffiti by locals and the thousands of ordinary people who have used it to show their individual and unique protest and act of solidarity with Palestinians.

William Parry is a photojournalist based in London and has lived and worked in the Middle East for many years.  He has been published in the Guardian and Independent and a number of other magazines and journals. He has also written for the Washington Review of Middle East Affairs, The Middle East, Times Higher Education Supplement, and several electronic news organizations.

Thank you for reading this story…

More people are reading than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all, while striving to make it sustainable as well. Media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our main supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help. You are what keep us sustainable. has staked its existence on you. We live or die on community support -- your support! We get hundreds of thousands of visitors and we believe in them. We believe in you. We believe people will put in what they can for the greater good. We call that sustainable.

So what is the easy answer for us? Depend on a community of visitors who care passionately about media that amplifies the voices of people struggling for change and justice. It really is that simple. When the people who visit rabble care enough to contribute a bit then it works for everyone.

And so we’re asking you if you could make a donation, right now, to help us carry forward on our mission. Make a donation today.
