Palestinian Land Day posters serve as a monument to the movement they represent. These vibrant graphics weave together images of nature and politics into a tapestry that is a testament to resilience. Like the bloodied kuffieyah print flower that breaks through barbed wire in the 1983 Land Day poster, these depictions promise life beyond barriers.

Below are the Palestinian Land Day posters  from 1980-1989.

    Would be cool to find posters from Rakah/Hadash, the political leadership of the original Land Day protests in Israel.

    The 1984 one is wonderful. And the wheat is getting stronger every year.

    Very nice, Allison. Are these from a larger collection, and is it available online somewhere, or did you dig them up one by one?
