Stand Up Fight Back: Demilitarize the Police. The giant in this poster is a personification of the almighty dollar and the security state that backs it up. The dog he holds on a leash spits out hate in the form of policies used to demonize poor people, to drive a wedge in society between us. The dog is the prison system, but is also made up of the media, corporate interests and the police state. This embodiment of the power of the security state is challenged by the people… small and weak individually in numbers we can restrain the beast.

I made these images after corresponding with American soldiers serving in Iraq. That process deeply humanized the military for me and continues to have a profound effect on how I perceive and react to images and narratives from American war zones.
