When A Palestinian Graphic Novel Launch Attracted All Sorts Of People…

0051

Budrus is an Israeli/US/Palestinian produced documentary movie following the history of nonviolent protest in a Palestinian village. Budrus, against the building of the West Bank barrier through the village.

It’s now been turned into a graphic novel, to educate Palestinian youth of the benefits of nonviolent protest over other means. And yesterday, the graphic novel received its launch in the village of Budrus that inspired it. You can read it for yourself below.

However, Jessica Devaney writing for +972 Magazine, an independent Israeli and Palestinian magazine and blogging platform named after the area code Israel and Palestine share, is reporting it has a rather messy end, with the launch being dispersed by soldiers with tear gas. I’m guessing they weren’t on the guest list.
