Posters of the Week

Two Posters of the Week – One with an international focus, the other domestic, but both involve human rights and human dignity, people’s right to a living wage, and people’s right to live in peace.

Produced to oppose the Wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, David Gentleman uses his signature blood spatter, to create a primal graphic scream:

The day after Thanksgiving, the largest shopping day of the year, is called “Black Friday” by retailers, and “Buy Nothing Day” by activists against consumerism.*  This Friday, artists and activists are transforming the biggest day of mass consumption into a day of mass-resistance by supporting thousands of protesting Walmart workers as they demonstrate at Walmart stores and warehouses across the country, challenging the greed of one of America’s wealthiest corporations.  To see more graphics, or send in some of your own designs, go to bit.ly/U9Wpv6
