Designs previously burned onto screens were used to print posters and make T-shirts.

Mira Samantha one of the organizers of the event said “The school should be acknowledging the violence, genocide, and continual apartheid of the Palestine people. The violence has persisted for so many decades, and we have a stake in it as a culture and art institution that exists in the U.S. and is part of the cycle of violence. This school has Palestinian students, brown students, Muslim students, and others who are a part of it. We have been given no space to mourn and gather in a time that is so destructive.”
