War and Peace, From Gaza to Los Angeles

Subtitle: 
a young activist speaks out on censored Palestinian children's art exhibit

In March 2009, I travelled to Gaza with an international peace delegation organized by CODEPINK, Women for Peace. Our mission was to witness the aftermath of Operation Cast Lead, Israel's 22-day assault on Gaza and to celebrate International Women's Day with the women and children of Gaza. One of the most disturbing experiences occurred when we visited children's centers and saw their drawings of people being killed and wounded. They showed their homes destroyed, their family's olive trees uprooted, and planes and helicopters dropping bombs and white phosphorus. They drew images of their traumas that no children anywhere should ever have to experience.

a children's art exhibit that shouldn't be controversial comes to Los Angeles

"Empathy is a wave that need never be stopped. If our children can catch this wave, from the ocean of tears shed by Palestinian children, they might have a future in a more stable and saner world." —Alice Walker [read Walker's original essay on the challenges of this exhibit]

Please come and see and support this new exhibition, A Child's View of Gaza, in Los Angeles.

Our Vision for a New Middle Eastern Arts Center in 2012

Subtitle: 
Case for Support: an Oasis of Peace in the Heart of Hollywood
Our proposal is the creation of a Middle Eastern arts complex with shared offices, facilities and services for like-minded cultural, social and peace organizations, as well as artists and writers, such that the Levantine Cultural Center (LCC) becomes a hub, a peace center, an arts center open to all. With the "Arab Spring" or Thaura (Revolution) that began in Tunisia and the protests and uprisings against governments that have spread across North Africa and the Middle East, we want to bridge cultures and build peace—to promote understanding across boundaries. Would you give us a mandate, knowing that the LCC has already devoted the past decade since 2001 building these bridges? Sign our petition.
