Multi-color poster printed on white paper shows a figurative landscape. A blue line within yellow ground extends from center left upward to the horizon line at center where it meets two green mountain peaks. Three large yellow stars appear in an orange sky and what appears to be a blue bird in flight is visible in the upper left corner. Text at center right reads "Ben Linder Peace Fiesta / In Celebration of A Life / April 38-30, 1988 / Portland, Oregon." Each day's events are listed separately below and are printed around a red star.Ben Linder was an American engineer who was working on a small hydroelectric dam in rural Nicaragua in support of the Sandinista revolution. He was killed in 1987 by the Contras, an affiliation of rebel groups funded by the U.S. government/CIA. [LMC]
