Palestinian Prisoners’ Day, marked since 1974 and commemorating the release of Palestinian prisoner Mahmoud Hijazi in a prisoner exchange, is an international day of action, solidarity and support for over 7,000 Palestinian political prisoners in Israeli jails. Events and actions will take place in cities and on campuses around the world, in solidarity with the struggle of Palestinian prisoners.

For the posters and signs below, it’s easy to turn these A4/8.5×11 signs into large posters for rallies – just follow the steps below:
1.) Print sign at A4/8.5 x 11 and place face down on a copier that prints A3/11×17.
2.) Using A3/11″ x 17″ paper, enlarge the layout to 200% of the original.
3.) After you make your copies of the top portion of the sign, turn it around on the copier. (You may have folded the layout in two, although this isn’t necessary. I find it easier just to turn the sign around.)
4.) Copy the bottom half of the sign on 11″ x 17″ paper to 200% of the original.
5.) You now have two 11″ x 17″ ledger-sized sheets of paper which when glued, taped or stapled, one above the other, will make a 17″ x 22″ sized sign.
