Information, imagery and advocacy
I was looking through twitter on my phone I ran into this tweet. I knew this was something big from when I saw it
New resource alert: Visualizing Palestine 101 is a data-led visual resource and educational hub for people learning and teaching about Palestine. Their graphics beautifully distill some of the most critical aspects of Palestine under occupation. https://t.co/GPZ0MicLq8 pic.twitter.com/Uw8bn5xw6S— Jewish Voice for Peace (@jvplive) September 26, 2019
I have always appreciated the effort that many people spend in trying to advocate a cause. When it is a cause I agree with, I like to put something out there to help. A small donation, are-tweet or maybe just a mention.
Visualizing palestine is a in a class of its own, the effort is huge and the visuals they create are tantamount to art. The message is based on fact, visualized to maximize the impact. The beauty of it is ethereal and the content is always weel-researched.
Have a look at their main project and their 101 subsite. This is not a project per se, it feels more like a movement. The influence of which depends on you and me. Look at their work, share it and let people know about it.
If you like their work and believe in their missions, then become a member. I did. Contribute financially towards sustaining their effort. More importantly. Use the visuals, use the data.
I will try to do that as well.
