Palestinians in Chicago remembered Mohammed Abu Amr, the 19-year-old sand artist known for his sculptures on the beaches of Gaza who was killed by Israeli occupation forces on 30 March 2018 as he participated in the Great March of Return on the colonial “borders” of the Gaza Strip.

Organized by the US Palestinian Community Network in Chicago, participants in the action sculpted the image of the map of Palestine in sand, filming it from above, while speaking about their own experiences as Palestinians committed to achieving the right of return and liberation for their people.
