Falling Star

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 patchwork of idyllic scenes  – a small child reading a book in a library, two small children running amid a raised-bed garden, a person gardening , and an old police car overgrown with weeds and wildflowers – is threaded together with the streamers and stars coming from an exploding toy rocket or fireworks.
