Char atchk (evil eye) patch
The evil eye, or char atchk in Armenian, is a curse believed to be cast by a malevolent glare, usually given to a person when they aren’t looking. The nazar, a blue amulet with an eye in the middle, is worn, carried or displayed to ward off this evil and protect us from harm. I have used this traditional symbol mixed with the symbol of Antifa, anti-fascists, who do the work of warding off the evil of fascism and other forms of bigotry and hatred. The char atchk is circled by olive branches, a symbol of peace and victory. This branch illustration is taken from my Free Palestine posters. Olive trees are known for their ability to thrive in harsh conditions; these drought-resistant trees can grow and produce fruit for thousands of years. They represent a resilient and unwavering attachment to the land that parallels that of the Palestinian people. Our fight against fascism is global.
1/2 of the proceeds of this patch currently go to Portland Action Medics. After the tragedy here in Portland of losing one of our comrades to fascist violence, the Portland Action Medics continue to train and provide support to protestors and activists in our community.
