"Well-known UK graffiti artist Banksy hacks the Wall"
by Nigel Parry, The Electronic Intifada, 2 September 2005

Today Israel is bombing the Gaza Strip, revealing the true nature of the withdrawal - not a move of peace, but a tactical repositioning in the war against the people of Palestine. After reading about the current situation at the Electronic Inifada, I saw this article on the Wall by Nigel Perry. I won't spoil it - it is worth reading from beginning to end. It raises questions that every activist artist should think about - and really goes at the question of can art/design change the world?
