A Protest Poster from the Seventies

As part of my efforts to document my older work I had a poorly aging poster scanned.  Back in the seventies I was part of a collective that made protest posters supporting various peace and social justice causes.  We were inspired by the posters of the 1968 Paris uprising.  This particular poster has apparently become a local collectors item.  A copy of it recently sold at a fund raising auction.  It feels great to have done work that is standing the test of time.
