June 5th, 2013, 46 years after Israel occupied the Palestinian Territories, All That’s Left members came to Jerusalem to repaint the Green Line. Here’s how and why and my super-objective, wholly-unbiased analysis:
And five reasons I objectively, unbiasedly think this action was a good one:
1. It was done in good spirit and was not mean. When did not condescend or attack the people passing by or even get in their faces. If they wanted to know more, they were welcome to stop and ask.
2. As contrasted to many “friendly” actions, it was deeply and entirely political, and unafraid to say very clearly what we think is a problem (and which organizations we think are contributing to that problem).
3. It was relevant, timely, and up-to-date.
4. It was creative, artistic and surprising. (“You’re painting the what?”)
5. It came from a collective, was collectively decided on and collectively carried out and collectively planned. All That’s Left. Green Line. Word.
