Northwestern University SJP gets Palestine-dressed Rock on school webpage

Palestine-themed art at Northwestern University in Evanston, Illinois made the university’s webpage today in preparation for Students for Justice in Palestine’s week-long commemoration of the Nakba.

Painting the Rock is a longstanding tradition at Northwestern, where students typically reserve the boulder and use it as “an accepted avenue of expression” to promote activities, events, campaigns, and causes, according to the Northwestern University website. Students took advantage of this opportunity to mark 64 years of displacement and exile in the occupied Palestinian territories.

The image above is a screenshot captured from Northwestern’s Rock Wildcam. A camera trained on the Rock updates the Wildcam webpage with a refreshed image every 30 seconds.

Below is the a screenshot of the website. Special props to Northwestern students for dressing the Rock up so well.
