Posters of kidnapped Israelis appear around the neighborhood

I first saw them on Tribecan and Israeli Nili Lotan’s Instagram; then L. sent a couple of shots taken in the neighborhood; and The Post had a story yesterday that shows the same images being projected on the side of the United Nations building in Midtown.

The posters show images of the more than 200 Israelis (and possibly some Americans) kidnapped by Hamas agents on Oct. 7 from areas just outside Gaza. The Kidnapped From Israel Campaign, as it is named, was created by Israeli designers Dede (known for his Bandaid illustrations in Tel Aviv), Nitzan Mintz and Tal Huber just a few days ago and it has now spread all over the world. In fact, there are already news stories about people tearing the posters down. Their goal, the three said, is to “create a widespread targeted effort to maximize awareness among the global community.”

The poster files come with instructions:

  • Please act as soon as possible over the next few days.
  • Document and share among further circles to the best of your ability.
  • Be safe – don’t provoke or instigate any conflicts with people or officials. Act quickly and stay alert.
