Bottom right corner has a small union bug and "Poster Brigade" printed in black.

Poster red background in the center with black bars at the top and bottom that have white text. In the black bar across the top is "International Hotel Struggle - 10 Proud, Defiant Years!" The bottom bar has a quote from Felix Ayson. In the center are cartoon drawings of various political figures involved with the incident, Judge Arnold, Mayor Feinstein, Four Seas. The political figures are drawin as evil creatures. On the right are protestors with signs. The signs read, "Defend the Chinese and Pilpino communities! Fight National Oppression!" and "To hell with their profits Fight for low rent housing." The style of this poster echoes that of Chinese posters from the 1960s and 1970s, with heroic citizens dominating over caricatured cartoon villains. [LMC]
