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 tiger and a black panther menacingly surround silhouettes of military drones. An image of the Earth is depicted upside down, with the South Pole on top, surrounded by several stars, which makes the image look like a recruiting poster. On the bottom, hand-drawn in a circus style, the text states: “MAKE ART NOT WAR.”
