Activist adopting the name "The anarchist arm for sexual liberation and the headquarters
against municipal racism" sprayed graphite on the walls of the municipality against
homophony "in protest of wild incitement of the last few months against the community of
lesbians, homosexuals, trans-genders, and bisexuals, which is carried out by various
religious figures and reactionary racist bureaucrats of the municipality."
Among the slogans sprayed at the Safra square: "Transgender and not transfer",
"Racism is a sexual deviation", "Marching in spite of your anger". In a
communicate they sent at the morning they wrote:
"We will not free till all genders be free, we will not be silent in front
of racism and homophobia. At dawn, we sprayed on the walls of Jerusalem
municipality slogans against homophobia and racism expressed by the municipality
and the person who head it. In these days where there are lot of talking on the ability
of words to kill, it seems people forget the role of religious and governors
incitements in Jerusalem against the lesbo-homo community, and the danger
in such wild irresponsible incitement.

The members of the group (who wrote in the Hebrew feminine mode) added:
We see a clear connection between suppression of gender minorities and the
suppression of the Palestinians in the city which suffer much harsher
means. Houses demolition, the building of the [apartheid] wall, police
harassment, criminal neglecting of services, and other tricks used by the
municipality to make unbearable hellish life to third of the inhabitants,
is intimately connected to the suppression of other minority groups.

The origin of the different kinds of suppression is the same, and getting
free from the various suppressions - be it sexual, national, economical and others,
must be connected."

The members of the group claim that this action is one of series of protest activities
against the Jerusalem municipality and its managers. "Today's activity is the first
in a series of many nonviolent direct action that will be directed in the future
against Jerusalem municipality if it will continue in the suppression of the
city inhabitants instead of serving them honestly and faithfully.

We will continue to struggle for Jerusalem that is pluralistic; egalitarian;
free from racism, homophobia, and chauvinism; without walls, road blocks,
police officers, and soldiers.... and with lot of love and freedom."
