The Pearls of Pearl Street 3

P of P 3

The arabic at the top says ‘We shall remain” an image taken from an aerial photo from the company Avaaz.  A small Bedouin community facing annihilation at the hands of Israel’s soldiers delayed demolition of their community and created a beautiful symbol of resistance, with a giant stone sign. Avaaz were key to the action mobilising international media attention that protected their homes. The pattern below the arabic is  a hint  (though a bit rough ) of Bedouin weaving designs.

Below that is Dal dy Dir a welsh phrase that says “Hold your ground”. This phrase was taken up by Cymdeithas yr Iaith during the 60’s  when they took up non violent action to establish Welsh as an official language for Wales.  The pattern below (a bit wonky and a bit rough)  is a classic Carthen Welsh double weave pattern
