Fuck FEMA & The U.S. Military

AgitArte/Papel Machete

Our friends from AgitArte are presenting at the Facing Race conference this weekend in Detroit, and the site for the conference, the COBO Center, has forced them to remove this poster from display. If it’s causing that kind of reaction, it’s doing what a poster should, so we thought it might be useful to get it into more people’s hands, so print this out and put it up!

From the AgitArte website:

We are being killed by an embargo of aid which is causing death and starvation on our people. We don’t need a military occupation and operation, we can build our New Puerto Rico. We don’t need the federal government and Its white supremacist and imperialistic practices of economic extraction and exploitation of our peoples and resources. The people of Puerto Rico and the diaspora who are organizing for survival are the key to our future as an independent nation, free from capitalism and it’s current incarnation of disaster neoliberalism which is killing poor and working Caribbean folk.


A brown hand raises the middle finger at an army-green helicopter that flies above. A destroyed electrical pole with a mess of wires and a dangling transformer is also featured. Cut-out style text states: “FUCK FEMA AND THE U.S. MILITARY. RELEASE THE AID.”

Seattle’s International Working Women’s Day for Palestine and Beyond

March 12, 2024

“We stand in solidarity with our Palestinian siblings in Gaza and those among our community who are directly and indirectly affected by the current war and genocide by the Israeli settler-colonial regime. Passive observation of the horrors of bombings, genocide, and prolonged apartheid is not our way. We must rise and firmly proclaim that Palestinian Liberation is a Feminist Imperative.” – Feminists for Jina Seattle
