saw it on the wall


A couple of weird items of graffiti in south Tel Aviv. This one is on a wall in Neve Sha’anan, on Chelnow Street: if you go here early in the morning you will see lots of foreign workers and refugees waiting (hoping) to be picked up for a day’s work, I guess mostly on construction sites. Anyway this notice is written in Hebrew, English and what I think is Sudanese Arabic (yes, I’m a languages nerd), which would make sense since there are lots of people from Sudan here.

This is on a wall in the ‘garment district’ area of Florentin, a network of small streets lined with small wholesale garment shops owned by Jewish and Arab businesspeople, utterly crowded on weekdays and empty on from Friday lunchtime until Sunday morning.
