Bottom edge has "Published by Student Research Facility 1132 The Alameda, Berkeley, CA 94707."

Poster has a black background with a white circle in the center. In the circle is "Unity is the solution" printed in red. Above reads in white, "from the prisoners of Attica State Prison: To all oppressed people of the world." Around the edge are various logos and slogans of groups: UFW, No Chinges conmigo mas!!!; Black Panthers, All Power to the people; I Wor Kuen; Gay Liberation Front; Solidarity; G.I. Liberation projects; People's health struggles; The People's Lawyers; Science for the people; Radical workers.

Note that eight out of the 10 logos use variants of the clenched fist. Iconically, the clenched fist was a graphic image, related to but different than the raised fist, which was a physical act of solidarity and resistance. One of the primary movement graphic artists to develop this image was Frank Cieciorka - see his related works 2010.54.1254 and 2010.54.1935. [LMC]
