Painting For Peace on the New Haven Green

The 48 foot peace mural is now posted on Interstate Highway 95 in West Haven, Connecticut.



On April 25th, PeaceMakers from area mosques, synagogues, and churches broke the myth that Muslim,
Jew, Christian and others can not work together for peace." This myth, that we fight and always have been
fighting, is historically false," says organizer Bruce Barrett. "We paint these signs before you today as a public demonstration of our commitment to peace, health, and justice for the Israeli and Palestinian people," declares the group.Popular media and bad preaching told us that our faith traditions havenothing in common; and yet
here we are, painting and working together for peace and justice in Israel and Palestine.

Hi Clara,
I'm glad you like the sign. Please know that we have another going up soon, with two young women. I'll be sure to post them when they go up.

By the way, I forgot to say that the poster is graphically very arresting. I hope the drivers don't take their eyes off the road too long during rush hour! ;-)

Just out of curiosity, Bruce--is there a female equivalent to this poster? And if one couldn't tell the two women apart from their clothing, all the better!
