Help increase awareness of it and the issue of human rights at home and around the world. This declaration reaffirms a commitment by individuals, communities and governments to principles which help shape the world. Eleanor Roosevelt, a member of the commission that drafted the Declaration, said of it in 1948: "It is not a treaty...[in the future] it may well become the international magna carta..."

P-NQ.jpg Poster: "In Germany they first came for the Communists..."
$15.00 $10.00 On Sale!
P-NQ
18" x 24" white gloss 80 pound stock.
Quotation from Pastor Martin Nielmoller (1892-1984) He survived internment in a Nazi concentration camp.
Text on poster: "In Germany they first came for the Communists, and I did not speak out - because I was not a Communist.
Then they came for the Jews and I did not speak out - because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out - because I was not a trade unionist.
Then they came for the Catholics and I did not speak up because I was a Protestant.
Then they came for me - and there was no one left to speak out for me." -Pastor Martin Niemoller

This quotation is widely used to voice the need for unity and supporting one another under authoritarian governments and is a popular model for describing the dangers of political apathy. Repression always begins with specific and targeted fear and hatred which soon escalates to encompass more and more targeted groups.

P-Chavez
MARCH 31st is CESAR CHAVEZ DAY (1927-1993)


18" x 24" • Photo of Cesar Chavez taken in 1971 in Delano, CA by Bob Fitch at a United Farm Workers meeting. The photo was used to create the artist's rendering of Chavez on a 2002 commerative postage stamp. The federal government took out the U.F.W. Organizing Committee flag that appears in the background of the original photograph to de-politicize the image. The U.S. Postal Service has never honored union organizing on any of its hundreds of commemorative stamps over the past century.
The poster also has text along the left side in ivory ink on the red background: " 'I am convinced that the truest act of courage, the strongest act of manliness, is to sacrfice ourselves for others in a totally nonviolent struggle for justice...
Nonviolence is not inaction. It is not discussion. It is not for the timid or weak.
Nonviolence is hard work. It is the willingness to sacrifice. It is the patience to win.' – Cesar Chavez "
The poster is union printed (2007) by Community Printers, Santa Cruz, CA

$10.00 $8.00 On Sale!
P-SSWWDH
11" x 17" • High Gloss poster stock
Photograph of German college student anti-Nazi activist and member of the White Rose, a secret student group at the University of Munich in Germany during the Nazi regime. The group mimeographed a series of six leaflets against the Nazis, which the Third Reich considered an act of treason against the German state. The students were arrested, interrogated, and within five days brought before a "kangaroo court" ("The People's Court"), charged, prosecuted, sentenced and taken from the courtroom directly to the guillotine to be beheaded. The Nazi's needed to make an example of the White Rioe students. The German government feared that there may have been other Germans clandestinely opposed to the Nazi dictatorship. Under a fascist dictatorship, people are executed by the state for merely leafletting. Sophie Scholl (1923-1944) and the White Rise students' courage in the face of such a regime stands out still today as an example to be honored, remembered and emulated if and when totalitarianism takes over another country.

(Wingbow Press, 1989). 24"x17" The poster has text in the upper left part of it, which reads: "I am no longer afraid of mirrors where I see the sign of the Amazon, the one who shoots arrows. There was a fine line across my chest where a knife entered, but now a branch winds about the scar and travels from arm to heart. Green leaves cover the branch, grapes hang there and a bird appears. What grows in me now is vital and does not cause me harm. I think the bird is singing. I have relinquished some of the scars. I have designed my chest with care given to an illuminated manuscript. I am no longer ashamed to make love. Love is a battle I can win. I have a body of a warrior who does not kill or wound. On the book of my body, I have permanently inscribed a tree."
