"The Bagong Alyansang Makabayan (Bayan) condemns in the strongest terms possible the barbaric killings of at least 19 aid workers belonging to the Freedom Flotilla which sought to bring much needed humanitarian aid to Gaza. The six ships had civilians on board, including Nobel laureate Mairead Corrigan Maguire of Northern Ireland, European legislators and Holocaust survivor Hedy Epstein, 85 according to reports.
There is nothing that can justify the massacre of these aid workers by the Israeli armed forces."
"The studio’s MayDay posters address the contradictions of modern capitalism which can be found in the fields of work and everyday life. There is also a sense of humor and gentle absurdity to them. The posters (and other related designs) are also participatory and collaborative — you place the stickers, you fill in the blank, you wear the mask, you rearrange the order. But they are also participatory within an urban environment, not just inviting the viewer to remake the image of poster, but by extension the image of the city itself."
