Poster has a photograph of a destroyed building with a Bank of America sign overall. The bottom of the poster has the text: "Don't Bank on America". On Feb. 25, 1970 protestors in the U.C. Santa Barbara student community of Isla Vista burned the Bank of America to the ground. Defense attorney William Kunstler, a defense attorney who represented the Chicago Seven trial following the anti-war protests at the 1968 Democratic National Convention, had spoken on campus earlier that day.
