Description

Image depicting a man and a woman holding up a banner containing descriptive text, executed in green, red, brown, and pink. Text refers to the Israeli and Palestinian group known officially as the Socialist Organization in Israel, but commonly referred to as Matzpen (Compass). It was an anti-Zionist organization which supported a shared country with national and citizenship rights for all residents.
