Multi-color poster printed on thin white paper shows an image on the top half of the page of a group of people on a red background. All of the figures appear with their mouths open as if shouting. A man in the foreground at right holds a rifle in his hand, and two other figures among the crowd hold up objects (such as a wrench) in the background. Text at the top left in white and yellow reads, "May Day / International / Workers Day." The butt of the rifle extends beyond the image into a dark blue text box on the lower half of the page, where white and red text is aligned at left. The larger white text reads, "In Iran, Around The / World, And Here / At Home, Flames Of / Revolution Are / Spreading!" Smaller red text just below continues, "Down With U.S. And Soviet War Moves! / Free Revolutionary Fighters And / Leaders From Houston To Washington DC! / Workers United To Lead The Fight Against / All Oppression! / Hasten Capitalism Into Its Grave!" Details on demonstrations in Oakland, CA and Washington, DC are printed at the bottom of the poster along with a list of sponsors. "Assemble 10AM: San Antonio Park / E. 18th St. & Foothill" is crossed out with black marker at bottom center. A white box for writing in local contact information is visible at lower right.
