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

"We exist. We are everywhere...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."
