Embody the Message: Occupy the Mind

We Will Not Be Silent, the artists/activists who designed the U.S. Boat to Gaza T-Shirts, is now selling 35 new designs to the We Will Not Be Silent t-shirt/language project.  Designs include a shirt which says PALESTINE on the front and a list of human rights on the back, and shirts with the worlds SOLIDARITY, LOVE, and FREEDOM in Arabic.

As the artists/activists who designed the U.S. BOAT TO GAZA T-SHIRTS, we are pleased to announce the addition of
35 new designs to the WE WILL NOT BE SILENT t-shirt/language project. The original project began in March 2006, when a small group of artists and activists decided to wear those historic words "WE WILL NOT BE SILENT" on their bodies during a public action in New York City. Soon after, the words were translated into six different languages, including Arabic and Arabic and Hebrew together. Since then, we have reached over 50,000 people throughout the world, who have also embodied that important message.

We continue to be galvanized by peoples' movements from Palestine, to Tunisia, to Egypt, to Greece and beyond. Here in the United States, with the Occupy Wall Street movement taking root and growing, we are engaged in a global uprising for social and economic justice, moving toward liberation and striving to end military occupations and abuses of power worldwide.


Based on some of the signs we carried in Greece, while advocating to send THE AUDACITY OF HOPE to Gaza, and in the spirit of our time, we designed new additions to the WE WILL NOT BE SILENT campaign. The words SOLIDARITY, LOVE, and FREEDOM in Arabic, have been added to the
Arabic Language Collection, each their own shirt.

Finally, we want to demonstrate our strong commitment to solidarity with the people of Palestine by offering a new shirt to wear, which says PALESTINE on the front and has a unique list of human rights on the back.

In each of the
35 new designs, we have chosen clear, bold and simple language to evoke complex ideas and, most importantly, to compel conversations between those who wear the shirts and others they encounter.
