My Country Is Not A Suitcase

Translation / Interpretation / Caption Text

Arabic translation:

(red text at top)

Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine

(black text)

Oh my intractable wound

My homeland is not a suitcase

and I am not a traveler

I am the lover and the land is the beloved

(red text at bottom)

Hail the people of Lebanon who remain steadfast in the south


Curator's notes:

1) The black text comes from the poem "Diary of a Palestinian Wound" by Mahmoud Darwish

2) This poster features, perhaps uniquely, the PFLP's original squared-off logo design by the late Palestinian artist Vladimir Tamari whose works may be viewed here
