Over 10,000 posters warning of a power outage were plastered over residential doors and public locations in Jerusalem, Tel Aviv and Haifa by left wing activists in protest of the government’s decision to cut-back the power supply to the Gaza Strip.
Dozens of activists participated in the overnight operation which was organized by “The Front for the Liberation of Gaza”, a coalition of anarchist organizations who oppose the government’s decision to cut power supplies to Gaza.
According to the poster, the power outage is scheduled for next week. “The power outage is a step we must take since there are army headquarters in your city which are responsible for war crimes in the West Bank and Gaza,” the poster read.
“For humanitarian reasons, the cuts will not be absolute, and we will allow you to use some power for hospitals, the water and sewage systems or residential homes,” the poster read.
It is believed that the activists do not plan to perform any real power cut in Israel, but rather aim to raise public awareness of civilian life in Gaza.
