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 from the Veterans for Peace. It has plenty of tape attaching the photocopies to the poster board. On one side there a photocopy of the Veterans for Peace logo (dove with name of organization). And below this photocopy is another with the plea "End the Sanctions Against Iraq." Also, there is an image of a crying baby. On the other side of the poster is a photocopy of the Veterans for Peace logo. Below that photocopy is another which has a quote from Dwight D. Eisenhower: "Every gun that is made,/ Every warship launched,/ Every rocket fired,/ Signifies, in the final sense,/A theft from those who hunger and are not fed,/ Those who are cold and not Clothed. /This world in arms Is no spending money/ Alone. It is spending the / Sweat of its laborers, the / Genius of its scientists and / The hopes of its children. / This is not a way of life at / All, in any true sense. / Under the cloud of / Threatening war, / It is humanity hanging / From a cross of iron. - Dwight D. Eisenhower."
