Lazet! Words and Art against the War in Gaza
Lazet!* A Collection against the war in Gaza and the abandonment of the south, was created in great urgency and anger, immediately with the beginning of the war, as a prompt protest act. The collection is a collaborative project by Maayan, Etgar, Maarav, Daka, Sedek art and poetry journals and Guerrilla culture group. On the third day of the war we sent out the open call. On the fifth day of the war we sat for twelve intense hours of editing to chose material. We received hundreds of poems, drawings, essays, stories and stories, but unfortunately it was only possible to use a small portion for the print. We rushed to have the booklet ready for the big “Against the War” demonstration in Tel AvivÂ that will take place on Saturday night – a week for the war.
