On April 20 2002, approximately 20,000 people participated in a peace march in San Francisco. The demonstration began at Dolores Park and ended at the city hall. Many causes were featured on posters. This poster is unique because it was hand-made and was perhaps the sole poster linking the San Francisco Labor Council with this march. On one side, in blue and red there are the words "Labor Against War SF Labor Council AFL-CIO." On the other side the words are written in black, green and pink. The first statement, in black, states "Mourn the Dead and has two flowers to the lower right of it. The bottom phrase, in green font, says "Fight like Hell for the LIVING" and has three words in pink to the right of living: "Justice, Food, Dignity." The poster is fragile.
