The photograph by George Azar is from the first Palestinian Intifada in 1987. The Intifada was a Palestinian uprising in the occupied territories of the West Bank and the Gaza Strip. It started on December 8, 1987, when four Palestinians were killed after an Israeli vehicle ran them over in a refugee camp in Gaza, and lasted until 1993.

For six years Palestinians staged continuous mass protests and civil disobedience demanding an end to Israeli occupation. During the first Intifada Israeli armed forces killed more than 1,000 Palestinians, more than 175,000 Palestinians were arrested, and 2,000 Palestinian homes were demolished. The Palestinian fight against the illegal Israeli occupation of their homeland continues to this day making George Azar’s photo and this poster timeless.
