Poster printed with black ink on yellow paper. A graphic fills the majority of the page that shows a layer cake with a skeleton in an Uncle Sam outfit emerging from the top making peace signs with both hands. Each layer of the cake contains various words, from bottom to top: exploitation, corruption, drug traffic, air America, raci$m. "This is the American Cake / Este Es El Pastel Americano" is printed at top in an arc around the skeleton. A drawing of a crowd of people appears below the cake with "STRUGGLE" in large font. An address for the National Committee to Free Los Tres in Los Angeles appears across the bottom of the page.
