Public advertising is the new battleground for Palestinian and American interests
Here is the new billboard, paid with your donations. It is viewed from US-50 westbound, just before it meets with I-80, southwest of Sacramento, which is a section of the main highway belt of the city, receiving major traffic.
As you can see, the billboard was designed to appeal to persons not particularly informed about the issue, and not even necessarily sympathetic to Palestine. This is deliberate: there is no point trying to win people who already sympathize with us. The billboard has been up for two weeks now, and will remain for another two weeks or more. It connects to a website that offers additional information and is another donation site.
As we previously announced, our coalition is taking the campaign national, and we expect to announce additional advertisements in other states before long, subject to your donations.

In other news, the anti-Palestinian group Stand With Us has begun its own ads on the sides of buses in San Francisco. These ads are shown and pilloried in the satirical article below:
