America Is a Democracy... (poster).

Berkeley: Berkeley Poster Workshop, circa 1970. Offset lithographic poster. 17 1/2 x 22 1/2 inches. A poster from the Berkeley Political Poster Workshop, created in response to the Kent State shootings. Features an image of protesters with their hands up in front of soldiers, with a call to "Unite For Peace!!" and a list of things that can be done, including not paying phone taxes, wearing black armbands, and speaking up in local churches and unions. With "Kamakazi Design Group" printed in lower right corner and the union label for Berkeley Graphic Arts Offset Printers in the bottom left corner. The Political Poster Workshop was a loose collective of student activists that formed in 1970 out of screenprinting classes led by Malaquías Montoya, an important figure in the Chicano Art Movement and lecturer at Berkeley. Some chipping and creasing along the right side, and light creasing to the top left corner; overall, in great condition.
