The Future is Collective Liberation is a poster created especially for the Progressive International by Kamea Chayne. The artwork, which continues the tradition of creative protest posters, is a thoughtful reflection on Palestinian resilience and resistance.
Standing centrally, an old-growth olive tree represents the Palestinian people’s rootedness to their land through 100’s of years of cultivation despite an ongoing Nakba. The tree has “regenerated in full” following previous severing of branches. It foregrounds, and extends past the borders of, a red sunrise — reminding us that each day brings new cracks and openings for transgressing oppression.
The dove with olive branch in flight symbolises the unwavering global solidarity for peace against imperial complicity in the occupation of Palestine and the genocide against Palestinians.
