This print is a part of the Dissenters’ portfolio and booklet, DE-MIL-I-TA-RISE.
Dissenters is a movement organization leading a new generation of young people to reclaim resources from the war industry, reinvest in life-giving institutions, and repair collaborative relationships with the earth and people around the world. They are building local teams of young people across the country to force institutions to divest from war and militarism, and reinvest in what our communities actually need. From campuses to congress, they are building grassroots power to cut off war elites once and for all.
In an effort to lift up this important work, Justseeds Artists’ Cooperative organized the DE-MIL-I-TA-RISE portfolio and booklet for use in Dissenters organizing campaigns, popular education projects, and cultural programming.
A pencil drawing of a city block, perhaps in Chicago, is under attack by bombs falling from the sky in straight, off kilter, lines. On each line the bombs make, this quote is inscribed: “The security we profess to seek in foreign adventures we will lose in our decaying cities. The bombs in Vietnam explode at home. They destroy the hopes and possibilities for a decent America.” – Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. ,The Casualties Of The War in Vietnam, February 25, 1967.
