DescriptionSupporting the decriminalization of immigration, '"with or without papers". Indicates support for immigrants' right to citizenship regardless of legality. The image, in red and black, shows a woman behind a fence, cuts and scrapes covering her face. "This Image was created in 2011 for an "Immigrant know your rights" campaign that was put together by organizers here in Mexico and across the border in the US. Part of the purpose of the campaign was to fund raise for Mexican, Chicano, and Spanish speakers from the US to attend the 2011 Allied Media Conference in Detroit, Michigan. We find it important for Latinos to raise our voice and be heard in the midst of an all out war against our communities and communities of color through out the US. Therefore we put together several workshops at the conference to share tactics and strategies on how to better protect our communities." -- Justseeds Artists' Cooperative website

Source"Justseeds Artists' Cooperative is a decentralized network of 30 artists committed to making print and design work that reflects a radical social, environmental, and political stance. With members working from the U.S., Canada, and Mexico, Justseeds operates both as a unified collaboration of similarly minded printmakers and as a loose collection of creative individuals with unique viewpoints and working methods. We believe in the transformative power of personal expression in concert with collective action. To this end, we produce collective portfolios, contribute graphics to grassroots struggles for justice, work collaboratively both in- and outside the co-op, build large sculptural installations in galleries, and wheatpaste on the streets all while offering each other daily support as allies and friends." -- Justseeds Artists' Cooperative website Justseeds Artists' Cooperative Ice House Studios Suite 104 100 43rd Street Pittsburgh, PA 15201
NotesCollected at the Bay Area Anarchist Bookfair in 2013.
