A woodcut -style image of arms and hands clasping around 3 ships' bows marked with images of weapons, money, and soldiers covers the top 2/3 of the poster. There is smoke coming out of the ships and a skull above the left-most ship. Half of a hand seen from the back with fingers and thumb spread is visible on the upper right edge of the image. In the center of the poster above the clasped hands is the text "Stopping the War / Starts Here" in black. Below the clasped hands, a map of Central America extends to the right edge of the image. With white text on a black background, the poster lists dates in the lower right and "Nonviolent / Direct Action / & Demonstration" in the lower left. The bottom reads "Concord Naval Weapons Station/Port Chicago / Bay Area Pledge of Resistance" and a phone number.
