An original poster designed by Peter Kennard for the Polish pro-democracy movement Solidarność (Solidarity). Kennard was asked to create a poster by the Polish Solidarity Campaign for distribution in Europe, following the imposition of martial law by the Polish government in December 1981. For his design, Kennard took the Solidarność logo created by Jerzy Janiszewski and cut through the lettering with a bayonet to represent the military suppression of the movement. A very famous design, hand signed by the artist.
