“From the perspective of the legal system,” he says, “there is a difference between the way Israel allocates rights within Israel and the way it allocates rights in the Palestinian Territories.

The fumes from the giant state-owned smelter, which closed in 1994, has left the dusty soil in the surrounding area with extreme levels of lead.

The 2010-2011 book Monsanto came into existence through a series of blood rites and rituals, culminating with a live performance of a death curse against the corporation. Just recently, Leyba and Coyotel performed a death curse against Nestle in response to attempts by the corporation to bottle water from California, featuring piercing, suspension, blood, and a lot of body paint.

The video is an experimental documentary directed by Matt McCormick and narrated by Miranda July, taking place in Portland, Oregon. It is no coincidence that funding for anti-graffiti campaigns often outweighs funding for the arts.
