Nonviolent Resistance. It Works. by poasterchild Nonviolent Resistance. It Works. by poasterchild
Please disseminate widely, thank you! This does not give permission to alter or claim credit for this work, for which I retain all copyrights.

The original from which this re-mix was created was illustrated and composed by Shepard Fairey as an advertisement for Luc Besson's movie, "The Lady," about Burmese nonviolent resister Daw Aung Saw Suu Kyi, which will be released in November, I believe. Before anyone jumps on me about "stealing art," this is exactly the kind of fair use that is protected under the copyright law, and so, I do not want to hear any bullshit on that score. Got it?

I should warn you that recently, her star took QUITE an hit...

She started to make troubling words and acts, it saddens me.. she is collaborating now in parts with the gov, like an ecological protests around a mountain and a mine project, and she said no words on harrowing anti muslims (a minority from Bangladesh I thinki) *pogroms*...

Saddening...

That's just incorrect. She has gone on record as opposing the two-child policy imposed on Muslims in western Burma, and in a democracy, one must work with the opposition to get anything done. In any event, read my policy state in my journal before you post again.

Fine. But polite, respectfull/calm discussions with opposing views (and I am as much an adversary of the rightist pundits as others here) is not trolling. Anyway, leaving this, not worth an argument.

Then feel free to create your own art and post your opinions there. I don't infringe on others; I expect the same here. Thanks.

Thanks so much. I am not sure if you are referring to the font or the words, but the font is called "Red October" (LOL), an the words at the bottom are an old saying from and about Alcoholics Anonymous, my other favorite group of anons. I work as a psychotherapist specializing in the treatment of complex cases involving substance abuse.
