Under the occupation of Israel, Palestinians are walking targets. Immobile under persecution and having had our homes demolished, our freedoms are restricted. Unjustified deaths of Palestinians of any age, status, or condition occur without hesitation from the Israel Defense Force––the definition of an ethnic cleansing. Any size fits, when you are Palestinian.

This piece was part of a public performance that took place on Telegraph Ave. in Berkeley, California. The shirt was pushed through the street on a wheeled clothing rack. The only people who made remarks were Black who face the same predicament with the IDF-trained US police force.

This work was exhibited at Worth Ryder Art Gallery.
