All Of Us Or None Archive. Gift of the Rossman Family.

Bottom center has small union label for Berkeley Graphic Arts.

Poster has a black figure outlined on the right, red text on the left, and white text on the right. The figure is raisig one fist into the air. Along the left is "Hell No Nobody Goes" repeated. The poster reads on the right, "Stop the Draft Week Rally Provo Park Grove & Allston Way Berkeley October 16, 7:30 PM Don Duncan Ex-Green Beret, Jeff Segal National SDS Anti-draft, John Gerassi Political Affairs, S.F. State/ join Stop the Draft Week: Oakland, 6 AM October 17."

This poster was the second in a series announcing Stop the Draft Week, and features the inclusive slogan "Hell No - Nobody Goes" along with a bold human silhouette raising a clenched fist. A third poster (not in OMCA collections) was made for an event 1/13/1968 to support the defense of "The Oakland Seven" arrested at the demonstration. By using only the fist from this poster as the primary graphic element, Cieciorka introduced a bold and easily reproducible iconic fist that soon was duplicated all over the world.  [LMC]
