I first saw these cards at a Palestine activism conference around 2002, when they were still quite new, being distributed by the Ann Arbor Friends Meeting’s Palestine Israel Action Group (PIAG). With the front side featuring a set of maps depicting Palestinian loss of land from pre-Nakba times to present, and the back featuring a contemporary map showing the fragmentation of the West Bank (alongside various statistics and quotes), these cards are simple, convenient, and effective tools which remain popular a decade after their introduction. I’ve met at least one person over the years who actually became a solidarity activist after being given one of these cards.
The Electronic Intifada has just been notified by PIAG that updated versions of the cards are now available, with a choice of three different designs for the back. NOTE: The image of the card front below depicts the 2010 version, but the actual cards are updated for 2011.
The cards can be ordered in quantities of 100 or more from the Friends of Sabeel North America (FOSNA) website.
