IRANIANS IN TEL-AVIV
For 3 weeks, 70 buses in the Tel-Aviv area were carrying posters of 12 faces, of Iranians & Israelis that are saying the same message, on mass media. we were targeting the people on the streets, those who don’t have facebook and had never heard about us, so we decided to start with the positive “we love you” slogan.
We advertise. for peace.
I never thought I would have to run away from my loved ones as a result of fear.
Being a homosexual in the Middle East, that sums up my entire life’s struggle.
I would literally be dead without my international friends. After my father forced me into an arranged marriage through death threats, the only way I was able to save myself was through my best friend in Australia. She met a girl on a peace website and together they organized my escape from Lebanon to Turkey. I would definitely have been killed without the help of my guardian angels.
PEACE it’s VIRAL
PEACE starts with the people, one person at a time. Today it’s easier than ever to connect and reach out to one another. We can talk, we can meet, and we can start a new friendship without even leaving our homes just by the click of a button. One new person, One new connection. Peace is when we see and treat each other as people. All we have to do is talk.
