On Saturday, August 12th, members of the NY
-based activist collective Action Wednesday, organized a series of projections in outdoor public spaces around Manhattan. The videos were aimed at giving out information and raising awareness about Israel’s war against Lebanon. Three locations were chosen for projections: Washington Square Park, Union Square, and the Bowery. Five videos were used: the Electronic Lebanon PSA
, “From Beirut to…those who love us”, “Beirut 1982/2006”, footage from a recent demonstration in Washington DC
, and a montage of images and factoids. Equipment and guidance was provided by the Graffiti Reseach Lab. Photos by EI
