A Gift From The People Of The United States Of America

This is the 2nd edition of a print I did at the begining of the Canadian/American invasion of Afganistan.
Kellogs had been given a huge amount of money to do emergency food aid and were busy shipping off tonnes of processed food which was past it’s best before date.

The airdropped food marked (“A gift from the people of the United States of America”) was received with a fair amount of mistrust particularly after a huge crate of Pop Tarts went through a family’s roof and and crushed a baby in it’s crib.

This event really exemplifies for me the decades of America’s fantastically cynical dealings with the people of Afghanistan.
