A Question of Legitimacy

On the front: Peace sign made from used ammunition 

Arguing the vital need for "an
alternative narrative," activists protested a speech by Israeli P.M. Benjamin
Netanyahu at the Jewish Federation General
Assembly in New Orleans, part of the launching of a new project by Jewish Voice for Peace. More in their own words here; protest video in More.

"We exist. We are everywhere...We
are your children...We are the rubble of tangled
fear, the deliverance of values. We know and name persecution when we
see it. We have family, we build family, we are family. We
re-negotiate. We
atone. We re-draw the map every single day. We travel between worlds."
