Activists project pro-Palestine messages on AIPAC building in Washington

The poetry collective 'Homemade' took political activism to new heights this week, after they projected a livestream of poetry readings and messages of support for Palestinians onto the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC)'s building in Washington D.C. to mark the anniversary of the Nakba.

The reading series, which takes place every first and 15th of the month has chosen to highlight support for Palestinians in its latest poetry instalment.

Their latest livestream was posted on the Palestinian Youth Movement Instagram, prompting thousands to write in with support for the poets.

"This is the best thing I’ve seen in a while," one Instagram user posted.

"On AIPAC’s building that is genius," another user added.

Nakba Day or "The Catastrophe" was when the ethnic cleansing of hundreds of thousands of Palestinians by Zionist militias took place to create the state of Israel in 1948.

The poetry collective’s activism is a brief light point in an otherwise dark situation, with the ongoing Israeli bombardment of the Gaza Strip and the violence in East Jerusalem by far-right Israeli settlers attempting to forcibly remove Palestinian families from their homes.
