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 basket filled with vegetables, bread, and other pantry basics is reflected below a band of text. The mirrored shape morphs into an image of a huge nuclear missile placed upon the top of the globe, touching the top part of North America. The text at the top states: “RESOURCE LIFE NOT BOMBS.” In the middle it states: “GOOD JOBS, FREE HEALTHCARE, AFFORDABLE HOUSING, HIGH QUALITY PUBLIC EDUCATION, GOOD FOOD, AND THE RAPID TRANSITION TO A SUSTAINABLE ECONOMY.”
