Last week, +972 Magazine posted an article regarding a campaign by the movement Solidarity against the settlement of Migron, consisting of a couple of posters that included visual and textual images of rape. The campaign was further analyzed in another article, published this week. Although the textual invocations of rape were identical in both posters, the images were different: One poster showed a woman that appears to be under violent assault, while another displayed a jar of vaseline.

Solidarity has since informed +972 Magazine that it never posted the first poster, containing the image of the woman, on its Facebook page or website. According to Solidarity, the poster discussed in the text was a draft that was designed and posted by a graphic designer on his own initiative and was never endorsed by the movement; this is the reason it doesn’t contain Solidarity‘s logo. The second poster was posted on Solidarity‘s official channel for a short while and then removed.

Solidarity has since expressed its apologies for those offended by the poster.

Before you go...

A lot of work goes into creating articles like the one you just read. And while we don’t do this for the money, even our model of non-profit, independent journalism has bills to pay.

+972 Magazine is owned by our bloggers and journalists, who are driven by passion and dedication to the causes we cover. But we still need to pay for editing, photography, translation, web design and servers, legal services, and more.

As an independent journalism outlet we aren’t beholden to any outside interests. In order to safeguard that independence voice, we are proud to count you, our readers, as our most important supporters. If each of our readers becomes a supporter of our work, +972 Magazine will remain a strong, independent, and sustainable force helping drive the discourse on Israel/Palestine in the right direction.
