PLO (Palestinian Liberation Organization) fighters leaving Beirut in 1982

PLO evacuation came after an agreement negotiated by the American envoy to end the Israeli siege of Beirut and not invade it if PLO fighters evacuated Beirut and left the country.

Soon after PLO evacuation, on the 15th of September, the Israeli army reoccupied West Beirut breaching the agreement, IDF surrounded Sabra and Shatila camp securing its entries and exits. Soon after, around 3,500 civilians, mostly Palestinians and Lebanese Shiites, were brutally murdered in Sabra and Shatila

Some of  Kelsey Hannah's photographs. She was a great eye for beautiful lighting, and really knows how to capture small moments that feel incredibly cinematic.

INFOGRAPHIC: Checking Out America’s Libraries
(Via Electric Lit)

I’m extremely proud to say that the Small Press Expo has now placed more than 1000 graphic novels from Independent publishers in Washington DC-area libraries as a part of our, now four year old, Graphic Novel Gift program.

And we are just getting started. I’m not going to be satisfied until SPX sponsored books are in a library in every state. And then every library, period.

Paint the town with Porcellino.


Can you help us spread the word about SPX?

We surely could use your aid between now and Sept 13.

I am looking in your general direction, DC. I see you Philly.  Don’t sleep on this, Asheville or Boston or the great state of Rhode Island.

Let’s bring the comics gospel to the people.

Grab this print-friendly version of John Porcellino’s rad flyer for the 2014 show, find a copier, be fruitful and MULTIPLY!

it is important to remember when prominent white figures like jon stewart publicly show their support for the people of ferguson that they should be using their fame as a platform for black voices, not just using the situation as a chance to self-righteously circlejerk with their lib mates/audience. good allyship requires you to be conscious of when and how your voice is prioritised over others’.

"The net worth of the average black household in the United States is $6,314, compared with $110,500 for the average white household, according to 2011 census data. The gap has worsened in the last decade, and the United States now has a greater wealth gap by race than South Africa did during apartheid. (Whites in America on average own almost 18 times as much as blacks; in South Africa in 1970, the ratio was about 15 times.)"
