Artist Shepard Fairey supports National School Walkout Day with two protest posters

Widely known for Obama’s 2008 “Hope” poster, contemporary street artist and activist Shepard Fairey created two posters to aid students with their #NationalSchoolWalkout yesterday. According to EMPOWER, the National Women’s March group that sponsored the march, the campaign drew over 3,000 walkouts all over the country including London.

The students are protesting stricter gun control after last month’s Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting in Parkland, Florida which left 17 dead.

How Lucky…

How lucky…

we are to have grown up in the United States amongst other free thinkers, egalitarians, and entrepreneurs.

How unlucky…

we are to still live in a country with backward laws.

America is an elastic fabric of positive, pioneering change caught up in political atavism on gun control.

Get as mad as you want, change starts at the top, in this case.
