I have some posters from my designs for the Celebrate People's History poster series by Josh MacPhee for sale. The text of this poster about the democratic uprising in Burma 1988 reads as follows: "8.8.88 - The Democratic Uprising in Burma - On August 8, 1988, hundreds of thousands of workers, students, monks, mothers and children gathered in the streets all across Burma to demand an end to the brutal military dictatorship. As a response the military junta sent troops to quell the urprising and in the following weeks ten thousand people were murdered. Thousands fled to the border into Thailand to gain refuge. Others joined rebel armies and took up arms to protect their people and fight for freedom. 8.8.88 made visible the resistance against the military and has become and enduring symbol of the Burmese struggle for democracy."

Signed and limited edition of 15. Silk-screen print on 150g paper.
