"From the days of hand typeset letterpress printed broadsides against slavery to the Occupy movement protests and beyond, people have used ink and paper to speak out for peace and justice.
The poster continues to inspire and motivate masses of people as it has for centuries. We now have the luxury of viewing these images on a computer, tablet or mobile phone screen through internet access. But the poster that hangs on the wall or refrigerator continues to be an effective, efficient emblem of the cause it represents." – Posters for Peace & Justice

P-CC.jpg Poster: Cesar Chavez
MARCH 31st is CESAR CHAVEZ DAY (1927-1993)

18" x 24" • Photo of Cesar Chavez taken in 1971 in Delano, CA by Bob Fitch at a United Farm Workers meeting. The photo was used to create the artist's rendering of Chavez on a 2002 commerative postage stamp. The federal government took out the U.F.W. Organizing Committee flag that appears in the background of the original photograph to de-politicize the image. The U.S. Postal Service has never honored union organizing on any of its hundreds of commemorative stamps over the past century.
The poster also has text along the left side in ivory ink on the red background: " 'I am convinced that the truest act of courage, the strongest act of manliness, is to sacrfice ourselves for others in a totally nonviolent struggle for justice...
Nonviolence is not inaction. It is not discussion. It is not for the timid or weak.
Nonviolence is hard work. It is the willingness to sacrifice. It is the patience to win.' – Cesar Chavez "
The poster is union printed (2007) by Community Printers, Santa Cruz, CA

P-NQ.jpg Poster: "In Germany they first came for the Communists..."
$18.00 $12.00 On Sale!
18" x 24" white gloss 80 pound stock.
Quotation from Pastor Martin Nielmoller (1892-1984) He survived internment in a Nazi concentration camp.
Text on poster: "In Germany they first came for the Communists, and I did not speak out - because I was not a Communist.
Then they came for the Jews and I did not speak out - because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out - because I was not a trade unionist.
Then they came for the Catholics and I did not speak up because I was a Protestant.
Then they came for me - and there was no one left to speak out for me." -Pastor Martin Niemoller

This quotation is widely used to voice the need for unity and supporting one another under authoritarian governments and is a popular model for describing the dangers of political apathy. Repression always begins with specific and targeted fear and hatred which soon escalates to encompass more and more targeted groups.

The poster has text in the upper left part of it, which reads: "I am no longer afraid of mirrors where I see the sign of the Amazon, the one who shoots arrows. There was a fine line across my chest where a knife entered, but now a branch winds about the scar and travels from arm to heart. Green leaves cover the branch, grapes hang there and a bird appears. What grows in me now is vital and does not cause me harm. I think the bird is singing. I have relinquished some of the scars. I have designed my chest with care given to an illuminated manuscript. I am no longer ashamed to make love. Love is a battle I can win. I have a body of a warrior who does not kill or wound. On the book of my body, I have permanently inscribed a tree."

And standing up, with courage and clear purpose, they somehow managed to change the world."

P-SSWWDH.jpg Poster: Sophie Scholl The True Story of The Woman Who Defied Hitler
$10.00 $8.00 On Sale!
11" x 17" • High Gloss poster stock
Photograph of German college student anti-Nazi activist and member of the White Rose, a secret student group at the University of Munich in Germany during the Nazi regime. The group mimeographed a series of six leaflets against the Nazis, which the Third Reich considered an act of treason against the German state. The students were arrested, interrogated, and within five days brought before a "kangaroo court" ("The People's Court"), charged, prosecuted, sentenced and taken from the courtroom directly to the guillotine to be beheaded. The Nazi's needed to make an example of the White Rioe students. The German government feared that there may have been other Germans clandestinely opposed to the Nazi dictatorship. Under a fascist dictatorship, people are executed by the state for merely leafletting. Sophie Scholl (1923-1944) and the White Rise students' courage in the face of such a regime stands out still today as an example to be honored, remembered and emulated if and when totalitarianism takes over another country.

P-MHAA.jpeg Poster: My Hands Are All I Own...
11 x 17" poster • art by Ricardo Levins Morales • union printed
Text reads: "My hands are all I own, they are my love and my sustenance." – Victor Jara
"Mis manos son lo ϊnico que tengo, son mi amor y mi sustento."
Headwaters Foundation for Justice
This is a quote from the popular Chilean singer-songwriter, Victor Jara, who was arrested, imprisoned among thousands of other leftists in the national stadium where he was tortured and had all his fingers broken. The military guards then said "Play your guitar now!" and Victor did with broken fingers. The guards shot and killed him in front of the thousands of others they had rebounded up to torture and murdered. This owas one of the moist brutal coups ever backed by the U.S. government. The Chilean military bombed the Presidential palace on September 11, 1973 in a CIA-backed Coup D-Etat that overthrew the democractically-elected Socialist President. Salvador Allende. Henry Kissinger and the Nixon administration in the U.S. supported this coup, and for the next 19 years Chile was ruled by the fascist government of military General Augusto Pinochet. The ttory behind Victor Jara makes his words about his hands so much more powerful.
For n outstanding a docudrama about the September 11th Chilean Coup, see the Academy Award-Winning 1983 film "Missing" by Costa-Gavras. We carry the DVD.
