This is a silk screen print on recycled brown paper, about 18"x14", but it also comes on WHITE, PURPLE, and ORANGE paper and WHITE cloth, which i have in stock. I can also print it on any other color paper of your choosing, on T-SHIRTS, and on CANVAS or WOOD, but those materials will cost extra.

Lucy Parsons (1853-1942) was an anarchist orator and labor organizer, once described as "more dangerous than a thousand rioters".. She helped found the International Working People's Association (IWPA) and the Industrial Workers of the World (IWW), and wrote for their publications. She was well known for giving fiery speeches and was often arrested for it. During the struggle for the 8hr work day in Chicago, her husband, Albert Parsons, who was also an orator, was falsely convicted and executed for being involved with a bomb throwing at rally against police brutality, which led to the Haymarket Riot that left some police and civilians dead. The commemoration of this incident and of the Haymarket Martyrs has become the international workers day known as May Day, on May 1st, celebrated the world over. This quote is from a written piece by her featured in the 1937 issue of The One Big Union Monthly from the IWW, in which she was referring to the story of her husbands death.
